ricardo to mcculloch1
London 19 April 1822
My Dear Sir
I requested Mr. Murray to send you an early copy of the Pamphlet which I have just published.2 I hope you have received it. It is quite possible that you may differ with me about the precise remedy (and the time of applying it) for the present distress, but I think I can confidently rely on your sanction to all the principles which I have laid down. In fact they are the same as you have yourself over and over again most successfully advocated. Though now more feebly urged I am convinced that they cannot be brought before the public too often, and I have been particularly induced to submit them to their attention now as the sentiments which I have expressed in the House of Commons have been constantly misapprehended and misstated both in and out of Parliament.—
An application has been lately made to me to represent to you that Dr. Kelly would be pleased to have his cambist3 noticed by you in any article of yours in the Edin. Rev. In mentioning this I have done all that I think it right to do. You are best able to judge of the merits of the work, and of the propriety of noticing it.—
I remain my dear Sir with great esteem. Yrs. very truly
