Mr dear Lord 

      I now enclose the Copies of the recent Correspondence which I have corrected for such circulation as you may chuse to give to it: my letter to Sir John need not form a component part of this matter.  Have the goodness to read the whole carefully over.

      I did not mention this business to the Duke before this morning when Iaid before him and he read attentively these vary papers - and he expressed himself in high terms of respect personally to you and fully approved of all I had done and the manner of doing it.

      I have shown your correspondence to my friends in this Building - to Lord Exeter, Mr Bennet and I shall mention it at my discretion.

          I have written to your Brother and by this Post I shall send a Duplicate of these papers for the perusal of the Duke of Northumberland.

      Ever yours

      J W G

The Earl Grey
