Content DescriptionKnows how highly the duke esteems Lord Rosslyn, and the importance he has in the House of Lords due to his character and great parliamentary talents; sends to the duke a letter he received from him in the utmost confidence, which seems to indicate that he is not in favour of 'some great public measures'; thinks that some of the king's ministers should write to Rosslyn on subjects that will come up at the meeting; if he misunderstood Rosslyn, or has acting improperly in writing to the duke, it is because he wants the government to use Lord Rosslyn's talents and to ensure that he does not think that he has been overlooked.
