Dorchester Gaol Janry—22—1824


With thanks I acknowledge the receipt of the volume entitled 'Fragment on Government &c' which I have carefully perused. Also, through the hands of my invaluable friend and preceptor, Mr. Place, I have to acknowledge the receipt of several pamphlets on the theoretical and practical qualities of jurisprudence, oaths &c and the liberty to print the tract—'Truth versus Ashurst,'2 with many other favours; for the whole of which, I can but make my acknowledgements, and return my earnest thanks hoping, that, I shall hereafter be able to gratify you with the assurance, that your kind attentions to me have not been wasted,

  •                                                I am, Sir,
  •                                                   with sincere veneration
  •                                                       Your obedient servant
  •                                                            Richard Carlile

  • Jeremy Bentham Esq.
  • Queen Square &c

Editor’s Note
2 Truth versus Ashhurst was written in 1792, but publication was suspended on Romilly's advice: see Letter 886, Correspondence, iv. In August 1823 Bentham added a short introduction and a note at the conclusion of the work, which was then published by Carlile in 1823.
