Editor’s Note
2 Perhaps the Memorandum, dated 18 August 1796, and headed: 'reasons in favour of the spot near Woolwich, as a site for the penitentiary house' (printed in Bowring, xi, 114–15). It concludes: 'A fit site, obtainable for such a purpose, without a dissentient voice, is the site of the Golden Tree and the Singing Water: and after a three years' consideration, I beg to be excused from searching for it.—J.B.'
