Box 149 contains a miscellany of material. It includes parts and fragments of a number of Bentham's works, including A View of the Hard Labour Bill, Panopticon versus New South Wales, work on the 1800 Thames Police Bill, Constitutional Code, and advertisements for several works. These manuscripts also include a plan for a government newspaper, bits about Bentham's auto-icon, letters to newspapers, miscellaneous collectanea not in Bentham's hand, and the final codicil to Bentham's will of 1831, in which he leaves his body to be auto-iconised by Dr Thomas Southwood Smith.
