Notes

First edition, edited by John Bowring. Originally written in September and October 1820 to support freedom of the press in Spain: "the object was - the rendering it manifest, how indispensable, at all times and every where, those two intimately-connected liberties - the liberty of the press, and the liberty of public discussion by word of mouth - are to every thing that can, with any propriety, be termed good government." (Advertisement, p. iv).
