My Dear Madam,

      In answer to your letter, only received this day, I must beg it to be distinctly understood that I rest my claims to the vacant Representation solely upon the ground of coming forward on the Tory interest of the County, and that I cannot consent to implicate myself in any degree with any other candidate whatever. The sentence in my last letter, alluding to Mr. Wentworth Beaumont, was simply given as a matter of opinion, without the smallest hint or intention of reciprocity.

      I have the honour to be. Dear Madam, Yours very faithfully,

      H. T. Liddell.
