Dear Papa

I hope you will excuse my having sent you but 15
pages of my Translation instead of 20 I intended to have sent you,
having met with some hard passages which made me lose a good deal
of time, and time is precious with me whatever you may think, as
I have no time at all in the Morning except Thursday for this
business and but little in the afternoon on Teusdays and Fridays: I
have 36 pages left to do which I hope to get done next week as I shall
have a great deal more time than I have had yet, on account of an Examination
of the Scholars which lasts Monday Tuesday and Wednesday
which exempts us from the lectures and disputations which
otherwise we must attend on those days except the Night-lectures wch
I believe we must attend notwithstanding. These Examinations are when
one of the Scholars the Senior is made Taberdar, on which occasion he and the
rest are locked into the hall from 9 in the Morning till dinner,
and from dinnertime to prayertime, which time they are employed
in doing Themes &c and while they are in the hall there are
no Lectures that the Scholars may not lose the benefit of them

I hope you received the things that I sent you safe: if you
would bet so kind as to favour me with a line it would much oblige

Your dutifull and
obedient Son

J. Bentham.

Sunday Decr 6th 1761.
