Box 91 contains part of the work entitled Scotch Reform; considered with reference to the plan proposed in the late Parliament, for the regulation of the courts and the administration of justice in Scotland that Bentham drafted in 1804–8.

Scotch Reform is structured as a series of five letters addressed to William Grenville, 1st Baron Grenville (1759–1834) on the subject of the ‘Administration of Justice (Scotland) Bill’, which John Scott, 1st Earl Eldon (1751–1838) introduced in the House of Lords on 10 August 1807.

Scotch Reform was first printed in 1807 but was not published until 1808, with a second edition following sometime later in 1811. In comparison to the unpublished manuscript material, the published material that appeared in the nineteenth century represents only a fraction of what Bentham had written. For instance, the text of Scotch Reform that was published in the nineteenth century in the Bowring edition of The Works of Jeremy Bentham is only fifty-five pages in length, but the surviving manuscript material spans over four boxes.

Detailed contents of this box are as follows:

  • Folios 1 to 45: Scotch reform - Letter to I; 1804, 1806, 1807
  • Folios 46 to 60: Scotch reform - J. B. to the people; 1804, 1806, 1807
  • Folios 61 to 149: Scotch reform - to Lord Grenville - proposita; 1806, 1807
  • Folios 150 to 322: Scotch reform - omissa, facienda; 1806, 1807, 1808
