The Right Honourable Earl Grey

My Lord 

      I am directed by Mr Beaumont to inform your Lordship, that he has given me Instructions to bring an action against your lordship, for having used and published certain libellous and malicious expressions, to the injury of his character, and which he believes your lordship to have been aware contrary to the fact.   Previously you my carrying this intention into effect, he wishes to give your lordship an opportunity of offering any explanation by which such a proceeding may be rendered unnecessary.

      I have the honour to be, etc

      Chas. Carus Wilson

Furnival’s Inn, 3rd Feb 1824
