Editor’s Note3333To John Stuart Mill18 April 1827 (Aet 19)

Q.S.P 18 Apr. 1827

Dear John

It is matter of no small surprise to me to see the title page2 without your name to it. Nothing could be more clearly understood between us than that it should be there. I do not say that the word title page was used on that occasion—but such was the meaning. If what you have done has been written under a different impression so much the worse for me—and if the book be good for any thing, for the world at large.


J.S. Mill Esqr.
