In ‘Letter to Lord Pelham’, Bentham examined New South Wales ‘on the question of policy’, while in ‘A Plea for the Constitution’ he examined ‘the question of law’. In ‘A Plea for the Constitution’ Bentham sought to demonstrate that the colony had been illegally founded, and was accordingly much more circumspect about distributing it than the first two ‘Letters to Lord Pelham’.
