    Editors, both past and present, of Mill’s correspondence have had to live with the certain knowledge that the task would remain incomplete. To the second volume ofEarlier Letters, Professor Francis E. Mineka had to append three “Additional Letters” that had come to light after the volumes were in page proof.¹ At the conclusion of the fourth volume ofLater Letters, he added another, much larger collection of recently discovered letters, one of which had, again, arrived too late to take its proper chronological place, even in the late additions.² We have been somewhat more fortunate with timing, in being...

    East India House

    1st September, 1824

    My dear friends,

    Not knowing which of you to write to, and being thus placed in the situation of the ass, I am wiser than he, and instead of starving I seize both the bundles of hay,² and write to you both. Your journal has been received, & read with great interest, but we have been grieved to hear of Mr Grote’s indisposition, and surprised to learn that you have had so much rain.

    (pp. 239-248)

    Dear Cole

    After seeing you I remembered a prior dinner engagement which in an unfortunate hour I made & should have written to you about it, but that from what Grant told me I concluded there was no chance forthisWednesday.

    It is provoking, but pray try to fix some other day.

    Yours ever

    Wedy.

    My dear Cole—I presume this² is printed only for private use. If it were to appear in any newspaper or be otherwise published I should wish my name for various reasons to be struck out.

    As it stands, I have...
