Stray Reference to Bentham
R. L. Stevenson in his Edinburgh. Picturesque Notes, London, 1879, p. 4, has a footnote in which he says:
'A man in a frock-coat looks out of place upon an Alp or a Pyramid, although he has the virtues of a Peabody and the talents of a Bentham.'
Professor J. H. Burns (Emeritus Professor of History, UCL and a past director of the Bentham Project) forwarded the reference to us. He added in his note, that the juxtaposition with the philanthropic George Peabody (1795–1869, of the eponymous buildings) is interesting.
