Tuesday Night, 22nd January, 1850.

My Dear Mr. Wynter,

—I hope you will have some proof by post to-morrow morning.

Having the great critic of Wellington Street here on Monday at the same time as Parker, I ventured to consult both about the title: and then we three ventured further, subject to your pleasure, to substitute "Hints on" for "A Tract." I also struck out the word "Section" every where, as being apt to be called eccentric or peculiar. The numbers I., II., III., &c, remain, with the titular headings of the sections; the sections remaining but without the word.

In the matter itself you will only find one material alteration. It is an addition about the Herald's College—which pray strike out, if you don't think it very pat.

"We ought, somehow, to compare our corrections of the press. Will you send yours to me, or shall I send mine to you—not later than six o'clock?

I don't meddle with Greek, and am nervous about Latin: so much for Westminster school!
