John Stuart Mill

Chapter 7, Footnote #09
An example worth mentioning

One which deserves particular mention is a letter respecting the Habitual Criminals Act and the functions of a police generally, written in answer to a private application for my opinion, but which got into the newspapers and excited some notice. This letter which was full of original and vauable thoughts was entirely my daughter's; the fertility and aptness which distinguishes her practical conceptions of the adaptation of means to ends is such I can never hope to rival.
