TitleLetter from Ashley G. Williams, Clumber Offices, [Nottinghamshire] to George Edmund Milnes Monckton-Arundell, 7th Viscount Galway; 12 Feb. 1872[?]
Date12 February 1872
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionStates that Mr Bills wrote to him enquiring about the views of the Duke [of Newcastle] on the coming election. Thinks that the Duke's views were in favour of the Liberal candidate. Didn't reply to Mr Bills after the Duke's letter to Mr Hawley was so widely circulated. As a Conservative himself, Williams offers support to Galway.

Probably referring to the 6th Duke of Newcastle under Lyne. Mr Williams was agent to the 6th Duke.

Date: Note that the year provided on the letter isn't clear, but the only North Nottinghamshire election during the 1870s appears to have been in a by-election in 1872.
