Dorset House June 13th 1794

The Duke of Dorset presents his compliments to Mr Bentham and wishes to see him tomorrow morning at eleven o'clock. The bill which he interests himself about is to be considered tomorrow at one o'clock. The D. of Dorset thinks Lord Grenville2 had better be apprised of it, as the D. of D. thinks it probable that both Mr Pitt and Mr Dundas have consulted his Lordship upon it. The D. of D. believes that Lord Spencer has some objection to the Bill.3
