William Godwin's Diary


For Godwin’s account see dep.c.766/1-03, in which he described Read’s actions against him and predicted his own bankruptcy following a judgment on or about 23 April 1825. In fact, he declared bankruptcy on 17 April 1825 and he was certified bankrupt 5 July 1825 (although he suggests that a certificate of bankruptcy appears in the London Gazette on 14 June 1825, this is not reported in any of the other papers).

See Locke, p. 367.
