PITHY QUOTE FROM Martineau: Collected Letters

Open quotes
I am glad to hear you say that you will make some use of the Indian Evidence. It is a vast treasure of material for the understanding of life in India, extending far beyond the common sanitary elements. Look what men are the speakers, – Lawrence, Trevelyan, & almost every eminent man there! All this, – collected with such pains & cost of every kind, – suppressed by the trickery of two or three knaves for purposes of their own convenience!
