Content DescriptionThanks him for his letter; hopes Lady Lincoln continues to make progress; thinks the county can ask no more of Lincoln than that he represents it to the best of his ability; says the farmers are 'bigoted and narrow-minded' who would see their neighbours starve, only becoming 'frantic' when mention is made of their pockets; thinks that should the county not elect Lincoln, it would be punished for its 'folly' by his loss; says that the duke has written a 'perfectly outrageous' letter abusing Sir Robert Peel; believes the society [Nottingham Agricultural Protection Association] will lose half its members if the resolution [to request the resignation of Lincoln as M.P.?] is carried; explains the measures he is taking in support of Lincoln.

Some parts of the text have been lost due to fire damage - possibly in the fire at Clumber in 1879.
