Qn Sq. Place 6th March 1795

Mr Bentham requests the favour of Mr Dundas to submitt to Mr Pitt the following proposition. Let him fix a day, any day however distant, on or before which he will have done one or other of three things:—settled the business himself, turned it over to somebody else, or afforded Mr. B. a temporary supply of £2,000. The worst certainty is preferable to so ruinous an uncertainty as that under which Mr B has so long been labouring.
