To Sir Willoughby Gordon, Bart, etc

                                   						Doncaster, January 24, 1824

Sir Willoughby Gordon 

      I received your letter, with Earl Grey’s enclosed, last night, and was far from having any desire of taking the notice of it that, in the conclusion of yours, you appear to apprehend.  I shall only observe by the way that the idea of my having been under a mental Delusion did not at first suggest itself to Lord Grey, for his conduct was entirely at variance with such an idea.   It is my intention, upon my return to London, to take measures for vindicating my character and confuting the many falsehoods which have been uttered concerning my conduct in this affair.

      I am, etc,   

JGL A40/9.
