Box 9 is a miscellany of material. It includes correspondence to and from Bentham for dated between 1784 and 1828, as well as a codicil from Bentham's will dated 1824. It also includes the manuscript of the Memoir of Jeremy Bentham, written by Bentham's literary executor, John Bowring, and which was published in volumes ten and eleven of the Works of Jeremy Bentham, published between 1838 to 1843 under Bowring's superintendence. The Memoir has, admittedly, been described by Leslie Stephen as 'one of the worst biographies in the [English] language, out of materials which might have served for a masterpiece'.
