Will this do it for you:

> Bill <- 1:100 # test data
> # partition
> Bill.p <- split(Bill, rep(1:10, each=10))
> Bill.p

$`1`
 [1] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
$`2`
 [1] 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
$`3`
 [1] 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
$`4`
 [1] 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40
$`5`
 [1] 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50
$`6`
 [1] 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60
$`7`
 [1] 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70
$`8`
 [1] 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80
$`9`
 [1] 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90
$`10`
 [1] 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100
