From this extract, may be seen that these Reviews value above everything, the keeping up the notion of their own mysterious infallibility. It is probable that the Q.R. is closed against the opponents of the Catholic claims, in consequence of its having espoused the other side, through the influence of Mr Canning over the Editor.2 The great circulation of the two Reviews the Quarterly and the Edinburgh, has been very injurious to free discussion, by making it almost insurmountably difficult for any writer not holding a public situation, to obtain a hearing if his opinions should not suit either of these periodical publications.

For the evidence for Canning's hand in these articles, see F. W. Fetter, "'Economic Articles in the Quarterly Review & their Authors, 1809-50'", Journal of Political Economy, vol. lxvi ( Feb and Apr. 1958). For Southey's own view of the Bullion question, see Warter, iii. p. 136.
