When, however, a few days since I was informed .that upon full con sideration Mr Atkinson was again ready foi the contest, I saw him, and was pleased ti find that this was so. This obviated ii my mind any obligation which had arise] on my part to vary my original resolve." f .„- . ■■--..„ .■■ — . ■■— ■ .— .. ■
