Scope and content

Trinity College - If an order is not made for the printing of RJ's book by the end of May it cannot be done till October or November: 'By the bye it has occurred to me that your way of beginning by talking about the definition of wealth is both uninviting and unnecessary. Cannot you manage to introduce the definition their when you first want it, and make your start more characteristic of the views you are going to take?' Charles Babbage has heard in Rome that he is Lucasian Professor 'and is full of gratitude and delight at the honor...Nothing can be better or prettier than all he writes about it'. Rose [Hugh James Rose] says that RJ should read Sismondi's work about Italy. WW hopes RJ has 'not split your head with Niebuhr.
