Dear Wilson

      Many many thanks for your letter and for the kind and friendly expressions it contains.

      I suppose Gordon expected you to call on him, or he might perhaps have private reasons for not <sending>. But as the matter seems now at rest for the present, it is needless to say more about it.

      I send enclosed a copy of the latter correspondence which produced my letter to you; with one of a letter from Gordon to Beaumont with which he accompanied mine, with Beaumont's answer. Pray give the latter to Lambton, as he has seen every thing else, & will be anxious to see the conclusion, when he arrives in town on Saturday. - He will give you an account of all that proceeded which is much too long to be written.

      I am sincerely grieved to hear that any thing has occurred to give you so much <anxiety> that you express in your last letter. Whatever it may be, I trust it has passed away and left no more regret behind it. Be assured you have not met a friend who feels a <more active> interest about all that concerns you, than myself, or who would do more to avert any evil with which you may be occationed.

      I have not time for another word - <> Your's

GRE/B60/4/139. The copy correspondence referred to is evidently the sequence of letters between Grey, Beaumont and Gordon dated between 19th and 24th January 1824.
