Content DescriptionReports that last week a grandchild of Richard Peacock, one of the earl's tenants at Solkholme, was run over and killed in the town street by a carriage of Francis Turner of Palterton, a tenant of Lord Bathurst; the inquest decided that the earl was due £4; when Wenman demanded this, the man desired some time to talk to his landlord to intercede with the earl for some favour in it; mentions that the late duke did in these sorts of cases sometimes remit some of the amount, although the jury in this case were very moderate in their valuation of the carriage and horse; requests that the earl forward his orders to him.
