TitleLetter from William Wenman, Lincoln, Lincolnshire to William Dixon, Lincoln's Inn, London; 6 Aug. 1715
Date6 August 1715
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionIs going for a day or 2 to Mr Gace's; will try to arm the tenants against the threats of the duchess; asks Dixon to assure Lord Harley and Mr Auditor that they will do everything they can; hears that the duchess has a parcel of papers which she brought with her from London and hid from those persons appointed to schedule the deeds; refers to Mr Thorpe's council.

Thinks that there has been much time lost in making the schedules while there has only been a superficial search for the writings; subjoins a draft warrant, which he asks Dixon to have drawn up and signed by Harley and returned to him [Wenman] by the next post; warrant orders that Palmer, as keeper, deliver a brace of bucks to a number of people, including William Loving, Mr Neale, Mr Digby etc, who will give them out to friends and thereby promote Harley's interest.
