To Mr Geo Allgood
draft of letter written at foot of the end of a much rougher draft to Sir W Thompson which is mostly illegible. He appears to be the ‘Sr W T’ referred to in this draft of a letter from ord to Allgood. Thompson, Recorder of London from 1714 and solicitor general from 1717, was the husband of the widow of Sir William Blackett II, Julia, nee Conyers.
