|Title||Letter from Scott Portland [William John Cavendish Bentinck Scott, 5th Duke of Portland], Welbeck to [George Edward Monckton-Arundell, 6th] Viscount Galway, Serlby Hall, Bawtry, Yorkshire; [1 Feb.] 1874 |
|Content Description||Thanks him for the Duke of Newcastle's letter, which he returns; discusses politics and the election for North Nottinghamshire; remarks on how changed [the Duke of Newcastle] is from what he was in 69; thinks that [the Duke of Newcastle] has in vain tried to make Gladstone stand by him in his private affairs. |
Letter is dated 2.1.74 but this appears to be a mistake for 1.2.74 as the letter refers to another letter by the Duke of Newcastle which is dated 29. January 1874 [Ga 2 C 21].
