"Some time ago, one of the most accomplished of our public men invited me to write to him on a question relating to the colonies. This question really involved the whole subject of colonization and colonial government. The correspondence that ensued, was neither intended nor suitable for publication; but it was shown confidentially to various persons. Some of them being most competent judges on such a point, have repeatedly expressed their wish that the letters should be published." - from the preface. ; 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 8003
