Q.S.P. 29 July 1823.

Dear Sir

I hope my kitchen, such as it is, will be found to furnish a second plate on Thursday: if not, by the instrumentality of a partition treaty, with a rule and compass, a single plate may be made to serve. Potatoes and water upon table, at exactly half after six: ½ after 6. By information from Mr Secretary Adams Smith, this is 'Yankee's fare'.

I find that after dinner by candle-light I should have said I have no eyes to find any thing, nor consequently to shew any thing. I hope therefore to see you by 6 at furthest.

  •                                                   Dear Sir
  •                                                     Yours most truly
  •                                                       Jeremy Bentham

  • Richard Rush Esq:
  • &c. &c. &c.
