        30th January 1834


      I am obliged to you for calling my attention to the Speech of Mr Hutt at Hull:   It abounds in exaggeration and mistatements which will shrink into their proper proportions when we come to the promised discussion in the House of Commons. I am satisfied you will do your Duty, regardless if all malevolent attacks, to which your Conduct in your Office is the best reply; and doing your Duty you are not overpaid.  

      With regard to Mr Hodgson, the Affair is not worthy of a thought: and what he says or does would not disturb me for one moment.

      Let me only beg you steadily to persevere: and the improved condition of the Hospital Estate will soon speak for itself and vindicate both you and me.  

      Very faithfully yrs

      (Signed)      JRG Graham.   

John Grey Esq.
