       In consequence of the language used to Mr Lambton on the hustings I am requested by him to desire that you will name a Gentleman on your part to meet General Grey on his behalf.

       Yrs etc

       Charles Bacon Grey

                  	Capt 9th Lancers

Friday 1/2 past 5 / T.W. Beaumont Esq
JGL A40/9. Loose leaf insert within the volume of copy letters. Date not given, but presumably refers to the challenge prior to the duel at Bamburgh in 1826, and the hustings referred to must have been those of 30th June that day, a Friday.
