TitleLetter from [W.H.C. Cavendish-Scott-Bentinck] Marquess of Titchfield [later 4th Duke of Portland], Welbeck, Nottinghamshire; 18 May 1801. Imperfect
Date18 May 1801
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionFeels that he has little to say to the [3rd] duke [of Portland] as regards his financial affairs, as it is clear that nothing can be done unless he reduces his expenditure below the level of his income, and how he chooses to achieve this is up to him; argues that it is probably not his place to recommend any particular course of action, but that if he were to do so he would prefer to write than to attend in person; mentions £5000 and his willingness to sign a mortgage.

Endorsed memorandum: '£5000 borrowed of Mr Denne to be laid out in Exchequer Bills'.
