The D of Northumberland to Mr W Gordon

I return you herewith Lord Grey’s letter & request you will take an opportunity of thanking him for the communication.  As we are so soon to have the pleasure of seeing you in the North & the ideas of a Dissolution are suspended for the present, I shall abstain from offering any remarks on the subject; except to assure you that I consider no person more fit to offer himself for the representation of this County than the eldest son of Lord Grey.  Under the impression that the Dissolution would have taken place in the course of this month I had signified my determination not to interfere in the selection the County might feel disposed to make.
JGL A40/11. Annotated ‘copy’. Undated, but possibly from September 1825 when a Parliamentary dissolution had been expected
