Notes

Autograph letter signed to Sir John William Anderson (c. 1736-1813), MP for London 1793-1806, discussing the expense of supporting convicts, prompted by the debate resulting from the third reading of the Convicts Transportation Bill in parliament the day before. The letter was sent accompanied by a copy of the first of Bentham's "Letters to Lord Pelham".
