Abstract:

Commenting on the choice of John Coleridge to become editor of The Quarterly Review; discussing how well qualified he believes him to be; saying "that it is possible to be a man of business & of letters at the same time is far from being generally understood, tho few ages have afforded better examples of this union than our own. Our own is indeed a marvellous age in whatever light it be regarded, & a pleasanter one there never can have been to have lived in for one, who like myself, has nothing to do in the world but to learn what has been done in former times, to observe what is going on & to speculate upon what is to come;" saying he has been asked to "undertake a continuation of Smollett's History. But whatever I do must be done at my own time & in my own way; saying The Bishop of Limerick has invited him to visit but that he has told him "I should prefer waiting till the next rebellion were over;" adding that he "wrote an Ode upon the King's [George IV] visit to Ireland which would naturally have concluded with a compliment to Marquess Wellesley; but I saw so little to hope & so much to fear that I had not heart to finish it as it should have finished, --otherwise I should have been glad to publish it."
