Notes that 'our friend Jenkins' [the stock figure of the newspaper lackey] of the Morning Post has reprimanded William Whewell 'for having written (according to Jenkins) that a promise of marriage may be fulfilled in an immoral manner'—'when the feelings that induced the formation of the engagement have ceased'.
