Extract Lord Grey to Sir W. Gordon

							Govt. House, Devonport  Jan 24 1824 

My dear Sir

       I have received your letters of 21 and 22nd:  the first inclosing a Copy of that with which you had accompanied mine to Mr Beaumont.

       I must in the first place thank you for the kindness with which you have acted on this occasion, tho’ I confess my feeling, for the reasons I had before given you, was rather in favour of answering any call this man might have been induced to make upon me, as if he had furnished no reason for declining it: I feel quite satisfied with the course you have taken after due consideration, having the greatest confidence in your judgement, and being convinced, that you would not leave my conduct to be questioned on any ground that could be considered as even doubtful by my bitterest Enemy.
