LETTERS,



Ifc. Sfc.



" It is of most dangerous example, of most corruptive tendency, ever
to let the faults of statesmen pass uncensured, or to treat the errors or
the crimes, which involve the interests of millions, with the same indul-
gence towards human frailty, which we may, in the exercise of charity,
bestow towards the more venial transgressions that only hurt one
individual, commonly the wrong-doer himself." — Edin. Hev. No, 135.

Director, printed copies of certain " Letters to, and from, the
Government of Madras, relative to the disturbances which
occurred in the province of Canara in April, 1837," now
nineteen months past, accompanied by "some explanatory
notes" from myself. 1 stated on the occasion to your Ho-
nourable Court, " that I should take the severest blame to
myself, if I had left anything undone in India, which a man
could do, to avert the necessity of submitting this corres-
pondence to the authorities before whom it must now come ;
