Content DescriptionSays that he has been persuaded against his own inclinations to make a 'personal sacrifice' and stand as a candidate [for South Notts.]; discusses his campaign; says his friends consider he will win, but that any contest would be hard between Norton and Denison; asks that Gladstone not mention his true opinions to anyone, as he 'cannot openly say' them; reports that Godfrey is canvassing for Denison as the Duke of Portland's agent; says the duke has refused his support; has been told that his reception at Newark may 'smooth' Gladstone's way should he be obliged to go; thinks he is right that it is 'impossible to be at once a candidate for the honours of the schools and of the Senate'.

Reports that Saunders goes to the Charter-House in ten days; says Bruce and Canning have asked to be remembered to him.
