TitleLetter from Henry Addington [later 1st Viscount Sidmouth], Wimbledon, London to [W.H.C. Bentinck] 3rd Duke of Portland; 8 Aug. 1801
Date8 August 1801
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionThanks duke for his note; explains that the letters from Mr Abbot were private and were not intended to be official; has shown the duke, and no one else, the most important letter, although thinks their subject matter should be discussed with Lord Pelham; does not necessarily agree that the government should pay for the clothing of the whole of the yeomanry corps in Ireland; believes that the extent to which this is carried out should depend on local circumstances and on information from the courts of France and Holland; explains that the expressions of Mr A[bbot] to which the duke alludes are the result of inexperience rather than impropriety.
TermIrish affairs, militia
