Notes

Second edition (following the first of the same year). "Torrens was politically unorthodox too, as he courted men of all parties to have his economic views pass into public policy. He endorsed Francis Burdett's reform proposals in 1809 and, after failing to win Rochester in June 1818, bore them out in his justificatory Letter to the Freemen" (ODNB).
