Overview

Excerpt from Letters of David Ricardo to Hutches Trower and Others, 1811-1823

Since the publication by the Clarendon Press of the Letters of Ricardo to Malthus (1887), two collections of Ricardo's letters have appeared: (1) the privately printed 'Letters written by David Ricardo (1822) during a Tour on the Continent' (Gloucester, 1891); (2) the 'Letters of David Ricardo to John Ramsay McCulloch, 1816-1823; Edited, with introduction and annotations, by J. H. Hollander, Ph. D.', published for the American Economic Association by Macmillan and Co., New York, Sonnenschein and Co., London, 1896. This collection was presented to the British Museum by Mr. H. G. Reid, the last surviving executor of McCulloch, in April, 1894.

After the publication of the Letters to McCulloch, our attention was turned to the Letters of Ricardo to Hutches Trower, in the library of University College, London; and further inquiry led to the discovery of the earlier half of that correspondence. Hutches Trower (born July 2, 1777) was a member of the firm of Trower and Battye, Stockbrokers, I Bank Street, Cornhill; and it was on the Stock Exchange that he formed the acquaintance of Ricardo and discovered their common interest in economics and political philosophy (see Letter XVIII). Like Ricardo, he was a shareholder in the Bank of England, and attended the meetings of its Court (see VII).
