Autograph letter signed : Keswick, to [John Wilson Croker], 1818 Aug. 10.

Thanking him for the papers he has sent; saying that "The powder & shot which you have been kind enough to send me are made up in cartridges. But whether I shall fire them or not at this time, is not quite certain. The more I think of public affairs the less I like them & to confess the truth, I engage myself more willingly & more deeply in the history of other times & other people, because they abstract my thoughts from the evils which are, & are to come."
