Editor’s NoteEditor’s Note 777To Reginald Pole Carew11 May 1791 (Aet 43)

Wedny, evening May 11—1791

Dear Sir

The Printer has not made the progress, I find that, he assured me some time ago he actually had done—I have therefore no copy at present in readiness to send to Mr Steel—There is enough however in readiness to answer any purpose of Mr Adam's: I accordingly take the liberty of troubling you with a copy for him, which I have not directed to him not knowing which of the Mr Adam's it is, nor what his Xtian name—I send a duplicate of Postscript Part I containing a description of the building which being in the state in which it is to be published, title page excepted may as well lie upon one of your shelves as in the warehouse—I am, dear Sir,

with the utmost thankfulness, Ever Your's J. Bentham

2P.S. The inclosed note you will have the goodness to direct to Mr Adam.
