The following report is taken from the Edinburgh Review of December 1828; the Review reproduced reports from other newspapers.
I have received your letter of the 4th instant, and I assure you that you do me justice in believing that I am sincerely anxious to witness a settlement of the Roman Catholick question, which by benefitting the state would confer a benefit upon every individual belonging to it. But I confess that I see no prospect of such a settlement.
Party has been mixed up with the consideration of the question to such a degree and such violence pervades every discussion of it, that it is impossible to expect to prevail upon men to consider it dispassionately. If we could bury it in oblivion for a short time and employ that time diligently in the consideration of its difficulties on all sides (for they are very great) I should not despair of seeing a satisfactory remedy.
