902 | From Lord Barrington

    Beckett April 23d. 1772

    Dear Sir,

    Last night I received your Letter of the 19th. Instant enclosing a Copy of a Letter from you to Lord North,1 which to me seems proper and reasonable in the highest degree: what you ask you ought to claim, & he ought to grant.

    I am very glad you did not come hither: The roads are worse than I ever remember them, the Country more deep and dirty, the weather till to day bad, and the House damp. I hope you and my Cousins will think of this place when it is more fit to receive you. I am ever Dr Sir

    Your most faithful humble Servant



    Your next shd. be directed to London.
