ricardo to foster2
London 5 March 1822
I am of opinion that without a breach of national faith, the Government could not, if it had the means, pay off the 3pcts. Stock at a less rate than one hundred pounds money for every one hundred pounds capital stock. In other words the par of the 3 pcts. as well as of the 4 and 5 pcts. is 100.—
I am Sir Your most obedt. Servt.
