|Description||Farrar surprised to hear anything in her book ['Recollections of Seventy Years'] has offended Martineau and writes the misrepresentation of conversations is due to her 'total ignorance of political economy', and her 'impaired memory'. Farrar has asked her publishers to suppress the passages containing Martineau's conversations in future editions. |
