It was , I own, a little disappointment to me, to find along with
my Mss, & the Ten you were so kind as to send me, nothing
in your hand. I rummaged them over & over, & thought
there had been a mistake.

The News you toldtell me about the Barracks, is comfortable indeed - I hope that source of your anxieties will
soon be stopped up - Down with the Red-Coats!
Lord North & Liberty for ever!

I congratulate my Friend Charles on his new Amours:
in this, as in every thing else he undertakes, I am satisfied
he will come off with éclat: let him pray stoutly,
if not to Venus, at least to Aeschylus & Minerva, to
be propitious to him.

I just now learn, that a neighbour who lives but a Door
two off has just had a practical Lecture on Criminal
Law read to him, which is not much to his liking: some
Rascals got in last night, & took every aApple out of his
Garden - + I have fortunately housed the greater part of my
Landlord's —

With sincere respects to my Mother & Brothers, believe me
to me
Dr Sir Your dutiful & affectionate Son
Jere:y Bentham.
Chertsey Oct. 14. 1772.

+ The Common Law, you know, as it stands at present, is so complaisant
to Such Gentlemen as these, as to give them leave: I think there
has been no Statute making inflicting a Punishment for taking Fruits; tho'
there are for Trees & Roots — my Definition, would Lock him

I believe it will not be many days, before I pay one visit more to Town before
