TitleLetter from Rev. Dr Joseph Hudson, Carlisle, Cumberland to [W.H.C. Bentinck] 3rd Duke of Portland; 10 Dec. 1787
Date10 December 1787
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionReceived duke's letter which revived his anger with 'Clarke'; argues that he [Clarke] is so far in debt that he can hardly support his family; not surprised if he was in debt to Montague; almost thinks that it was better that he did not come to the election as he would have been obliged to vote for Montague's nephew; thinks that if he comes to London he may be arrested for debt; wishes that Mr King knew whether a Mr Wilgrass had been a preacher at Temple Church at any time since 1784, and whether he wrote to Clarke for his vote for the Grays Inn preachership.

Hears that Sir Michael Fleming called on Clarke in favour of Mr King on the same day that he sent Huddlestone from Penrith; Dr Grisdale has reported that Huddlestone has disappointed all his 'Friends', although he [writer] thinks he is worried about losing his place as Commissioner of Bankrupts; is sorry duke was 'so true a prophet' about the see of London; George Blamire asked him to send papers to duke; suggests that before he sends an answer, he sees the Duke of Norfolk and Sir Henry Fletcher.
