De Quincey writes of what he has heard about the state of John Scott's health: "Mr. D[awes] assured me that the ball was extracted; and that, by the latest account he has seen, S. was in a fair way for recovering. I fear, however, from the style of your note, this must be a mistake." Goes on to write of his sorrow at the thought of Scott's death and of his changed opinion of Scott: "I learned enough ... at Edinburgh to acquit him ... of all injustice in the main matter of his charge against Blackwood ... In many very important qualities I do not think he has left his equal behind."
