Autograph letter signed : Keswick, to [John Wilson Croker], 1834 Mar. 29.

Explaining that his statement was in error but that he cannot find the source material on which he relied; saying he will correct the error if "Murray ever means to print my last volume in octavo;" commenting that "I see no way out of the dangers into which a demented government has brought us, but this is far from making me respond. Formerly it was possible to see some way before us, when man acted upon known & assignable views, & public affairs held their ordinary course.
