MILL, John Stuart. (1806-1873). Philosopher and political economist.
Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent, 3 pages 8vo (slight traces of mounting on the blank fourth page), Blackheath, 14 March 1863. Sending thanks for a book, promising to read it but declining to review it.
'... I am much obliged to Mr McMillan (sic) for sending me Mr Freeman's book. I intend reading it as soon as I have time, and I hope that this will be before long. I cannot however hold out any prospect of my reviewing it (in fact I have already declined a proposal to do so) as the history of the Achaean league, though as a part of Greek history I am strongly interested in it, is not a subject on which I am competent to write.'The book in question is likely to be 'A History of Federal Government', (vol. I, all published, London, 1863), by Edward August Freeman.
Not in The Later Letters of John Stuart Mill, ed Mineka and Lindley, and apparently unpublished.
