Content DescriptionThinks it impossible that he should place himself in a position to lose twice within his 'own county'; does not believe he can beat Lord Henry Bentinck in the northern division [of Notts.] as he has been canvassing for ten days; feels that the conduct of the Duke of Portland means he has no obligations of 'respect and friendship as regards him'; does not wish to disturb the 'peace of the county' when he cannot guarantee victory; thinks his meagre means cannot oppose the purse of the Duke of Portland; will pass through Nottingham the next day.
