(2) J.B.'s repugnance

When, in the year 1801 ǂ ǂ 24 March 1801 upon the resignation of Mr Pitt, and the consequent
change in the Ministry, in the Year 1800 and
the winding up that which, on that occasion, took place
in the business of the Treasury a correspondence
appeared in public, whereby it appeared that was made some time after made
immediately after the notice given to me as above || || §§.4. by the Treasury and the Duke of
Portland (viz (the 25 March 1800) to propose for the reception of 2000 prisoners, || || Mr Long to Mr
Bentham 25 Mar. 1801.
