Two new boxes have now been uploaded to the Transcription Desk. We now have a total of six boxes and 2073 manuscripts available to view. Our latest additions – boxes 73 and 96 – contain manuscripts written in the mid-1770s on such themes as legislation and law-making, crime and punishment and religion. Bentham discusses famous figures such as Voltaire, William Blackstone, David Hume and Francis Hutchison, and he muses on drunkenness, swearing and adultery, as well as suicide, infanticide and homicide. Visit the Transcription Desk and become the first to transcribe Bentham’s potentially thrilling writings on these hot topics. Make sure and share your findings with other users by contributing to the discussion forum. Happy transcribing!
