TitleLetter from Thomas Carter, Upper Brook Street, London to [W.H.C. Bentinck] 3rd Duke of Portland; 2 July 1801
Date2 July 1801
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionUnderstands that a position at the board of excise requires constant attendance in London and is inconsistent with residence a distance away from the city; is reluctant to give up what the duke had initially suggested to him and is aware that their discussions at the time of Mr Garthshore's appointment to the admiralty may seem to limit his options; however, if Mr Addington can be persuaded to listen to the duke's recommendations, he would like to be considered for a seat in Parliament, which will allow him temporary absences from London; thanks the duke for applying to Addington on his behalf and also for his help in the West Indies business; regrets that the duke's accident, which occasioned his visit to Cuffnells, prevented Carter from seeing him.
