If James Mill thought the moment unpropitious for him to seek a seat in 30 See Morning Chronicle, 26 March 1831. 31 Examiner, 13 Feb. 1831. 32 Examiner, 24 April 1831. 33 Morning Chronicle, 25 April 1831. 34 Personal Life of George Grote, 68. 35 Personal Life of George Grote, 67. 30 kinzer Parliament, Grote would have readily deferred to this judgment. In the days following the meeting at Mill’s house Grote took a key role in promoting the election of the four candidates upholding the cause of reform, all of whom were returned unopposed.

Bentham’s Plan of Parliamentary Reform, although far more cerebral and abstract than the typical productions of popular Radicalism—and shorn of any appeal to natural rights or the ‘ancient constitution’12—addressed issues whose contemporary relevance seemed unmistakable.
