Per Dry ground Radical Reform

thus it must be before
valuation for division
could be commenced.

1. On turning to the Benthams Radical Reform Bill (it may be seen)
the mere operation of ascertaining quantities could not of itself
but occupy morea greater length of time then by any advocate friend to the plan can could be
thought of with much pleasure. But with reference to the operation of valuing, the difficulty, attendant in
that operation, would be but a preliminary difficulty. This
preliminary difficulty would first be to be overcome; and then would
be to commence the difficulty of valuation, and, thereby or thereafter
substituting to the shares indicated by equality of quantity, the shares indicated
by equality of value.
