TitleLetter from [G. Byng] 4th Viscount Torrington to [W.H.C. Bentinck] 3rd Duke of Portland; 24 July 1793
Date24 July 1793
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionWrites that the duke's letter with Shove's enclosed has 'overpowered my faculties'; had hoped that the duke's 'interference' would have persuaded 'Mrs M. to do that which is Evidently her own interest to do' and would have got him a home; does not think that it is worth concerning Oddie with the 'minutiae of the doubt in question'; regrets his bad fortune; hopes there might be some benefit in Mr Dalison giving up his lease on 'Ducks place' farm, and by 'Mrs M.' giving up the right to it, but that yet has to be negotiated before they can apply to Messrs. Wyatt and Hoare; believes Lord Amherst has influence over Mrs M.

Adds his thanks to the Duchess and the help that she gave his children, particularly Mabella; reports their visit to T[unbridge] Wells and that Sir H. and Miss Bridgeman will leave on Sunday; writes that Mr Ch[arles] Greville and Lady Charlotte came on Saturday but leave on Monday for Eastbourne; Georgina went to Cowes on Saturday night; enquires whether the 'Arbitration for the great question' proposed by Mr John Amherst is to take place; suggests that only lawyers will understand the legalities of Mr Rich[ard] M[aster]'s will.
