Paris 29 7bre 24

Mr Benjamin Constant avails himself of the Departure of Mr James Morrison2 to express to Mr Jeremy Bentham his gratitude for the books sent & his esteem & high value of his character & principles. He regrets the necessity he is under of sending this Note at this very moment prevents his adding partial remarks to general approbation. But he would not miss the opportunity of returning his thanks & presenting his homage to one of the first as well as of the most benevolent philosophers of our age.
