If you have submitted a transcript and it has not been checked, please do get in touch: for reasons best known to itself, my email programme has been funnelling a number of submissions into the junk folder. I think I have retrieved all those so treated, but please do let us know if some of your transcripts have not been retrieved.

Thank you, as ever, to all those who have given their time and effort to Transcribe Bentham during the last seven days. It remains greatly appreciated.
