of such Computation the annual Proportion of the Same Total of the Deaths
at the end of a year to that of Persons living at the Commencement of the said
Year according to the London Bills of Mortality and the Calculation grounded
thereon by the late Reverend Dr Price ) provided that in the first years
Account in the Computation of the Deaths so to be expected according to the
said bills and Calculations the whole number of Deaths among Persons of all
Ages shall be taken into such Account but that in the Account of every subsequent
Year all Ages under those of Ten and above 55 Years shall be excluded
and such Computation being respectively made the said Jeremy Bentham
and his Successors shall at the end of each Year be on the one hand made
Creditor or Creditors to the amount of £100 for every Death which in the
Course of the said Year might according to such Computation have been
expected have been expected to take place among the said Convicts or Prisoners
and on the other hand Debtors or Debtors in the said amount of
£100 for every Death which within the said Period shall actually have
taken place for example if the number of Deaths expected to have taken
place at the end of the Year shall be as one to 25 ^ the number of Persons living Correction

at the Commencement of the said Year (for the said intended original number
of 1000 Convicts or Prisoners) such number of Deaths will be 40 and the Sum of

his or their receiving the said number of 1000 Convicts or Prisoners and as such
Governor or Governors will be made Debtor or Debtors in the said amount
of £100 for every Convict of or Prisoner who during the said Period shall
actually have died it follows that if no more or less than the Expected Correction
nor
number of 40 Persons shall have died, then such Governor or Governors will
neither have to receive nor pay any Sum or Sums of Money for or on account
of such Insurance but if instead of 40, 41 Persons shall happen to Die then
such Governor or Governors will be liable to pay the amount of £100 and if
instead of 40, 39 Persons only shall happen to Die then such Governor or
Governors will be entitled to receive to the said amount of £100 And
£4000 for 1000 Prisoners being in the same proportion as £4 for one
Prisoner, therefore according to the abovementioned Computations £4 will
be the Premium for which such intended Governor or Governors is or are to
be made Creditor or Creditors on Account of each Individual Prisoner on
the Day when delivered to his charge on Account condition of being made Debtor
or Debtors to the amount of £100 in the event of such prisoners dying
