TitleLetter from Beaumont Hotham [later 2nd Baron Hotham], Temple, London to John Woodhouse; 26 Nov. 1766
Date26 November 1766
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionReturns the draft of the agreement between the Duke of Portland and Mr Foley [later 1st Baron of the 2nd creation]; writes that most of Mr Booth's alterations appear suitable, apart from one pertaining to the duke's 'disavowal' of the intention to 'sully the character' of Lord Foley [2nd Baron of the 1st creation]; thinks this clause is unnecessary and unkind; believes that both Price and Woodhouse were of the same opinion; does not think that duke will reject this altered agreement if Mr Foley strongly demands it, as he has so much confidence in Foley's honour; however will not tell the duke of this alteration unless Mr Foley insists upon it; sorry to bother Woodhouse, but felt that this was an important point; asks Woodhouse to give him instructions on this during the coming week.
