Bentham to Mulford, 6 July 1812

The member by whom this letter is franked is the famous Mr. Brougham—pronounced Broom—who, by getting the Orders in Council revoked, and peace and trade with America thereby restored, has just filled the whole country with joy, gladness, and returning plenty. He has been dining with me to-day and has but just gone. This little dinner of mine he has been intriguing for any time these five or six months ; and what with one plague and another, never till this day could I find it in my heart to give him one. I mean this year ; for the last we were already intimate. He is already one of the first men in the House of Commons, . . . (etc).
