Correspondence VIII

Page Line   Corrected text
450 n. 2 replace current note with: In 1779 Samuel Bentham had composed a broadsheet entitled ‘Sir William Petty’s Plan for a System of Instruction relative to the business of the Marine Department, in the same words as in the original; but with the articles transposed; and marginal titles, supplemental articles, and remarks added’, which was printed but never published. The work was based on a short piece by Sir William Petty (1623-87), political economist, entitled ‘What a Compleat Treatise of Navigation should contain’, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, vol. xvii, no. cxcviii (1694), 657–9. A copy of the broadsheet is bound with other works of Samuel Bentham in Naval Papers and Documents referred to in Naval Essays, London, 1828 (British Library shelf-mark 716.d.28).
