TC TO AN UNIDENTIFIED CORRESPONDENT

11 October 1851

[TC's correspondent had apparently asked his opinion of William Hanna's view of Edward Irving.1 TC says it is wrong because of lack of information and says he hopes that Irving's letters are being preserved. He writes that Hanna “has formed an erroneous impression of Edward Irving, whom indeed not many now know well; nor, indeed, for that matter, ever did, even when there was most said about him … . I should rejoice in any opportunity of putting him and any others right on such a subject. A subject well known to me; and of an interest that can never cease with me, for one.”]
