PITHY QUOTE FROM Bentham: Correspondence

Open quotes
These cursed people at Grill's though I called and wrote, and saw the Clerks and received promises and assurances over and over, and sent the things in time, missed the Ship that was to sail this day sennight, by which you will be a fortnight later in receiving the things, than you expected. What the consequences may be the Lord knoweth, but there is no help for it.

The Bottom Line: Past Masters is an essential online resource for its target audience, upper-level undergraduates and scholarly researchers. Not only does it make key philosophical works accessible on users’ desktops 24/7, but it also provides in-text citations and searchable text. In addition, à la carte database customization makes it financially accessible not only to large universities and research libraries but also to smaller academic institutions and medium to large public libraries, for which it is recommended highly.
