TitleLetter from William Wenman, Edwinstow[e], Nottinghamshire to William Thomas; 15 July 1728
Date15 July 1728
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionThanks him for his care in the affair of Vernon; has heard nothing more about it, but hopes he will not be surprised of any unfair practices among Vernon's lawyers; rejoices with Thomas on the success of Mary[le]bone market, as he does for everything which increases the prosperity of Lord Oxford.

Thanks him for his support over the matter of Clipston[e] Farm which the earl told him he had not let to Mr Porter or anybody else; Wenman was going to offer it among the other tenants at Clipston[e], but 'Mr Porter says he will have it'; needs the earl's directions as to whether he should give Porter the keys of the house.

Is very pleased that 'my Lord' will initiate the methods of his 'late, great Master' [1st Duke of Newcastle upon Tyne]; one of these was that he would not suffer any of his agents to be insulted in their care and duty of him, nor want his directions in every instance how they should act; remembers that it is 17 years since his death to the day.
Termestate business, Clipstone
