From the same [DB] to the same [CB], Bretton Hall. 4 Feby. 1816 – 

The moment we arrive in Town, I will endeavour to see the irish Sec[retar]y & will also get Lord Limerick to speak to the Irish Chancellor of the Exchqr, W. Fitsgerald, & Coll. Beaumont will write officially to Mr. Peel, & I trust, with all these aids success may be expected, at least it shall not be my fault, & I will endeavour to get at Lord <Granard>, if Lord Forbes (his Son) is in town, I will attack him. We set out on Thursday for London.
