20th April 1825

Recievd a letter from Taylor in answer to mine to Hessey of last Sunday — He is very pettish respecting my anxiety & irritation & says that if my friends who gave me the advice & cautions &c respecting the neglect & mystery of booksellers or myself can find a Publisher who can do better by them than he does he will readily return the M.S.S. — but he throws a river in the way for me to cross by saying that tho none of their distrust can do no good it may do harm — now if it can do harm to find fault with actions that can find no commendation I am sure it can do no good to speak in their praise
