Lord Townshend to Philip Case: thanks for giving a qualification to his son Charles whom he seldom sees, and whose usual conduct is to mistrust and discredit anything he says; will not allow a penny more to be spent on the Yarmouth election than the £1,000 he lodged with Case in January for that purpose.
Philip Case, Lynn, to George Townshend: asks him to support his application to be both steward of the courts and receiver of the rents of the late Lord Colerane's estate in Norfolk. With note, verso, that Townshend claimed he never received it, but that it was found in one of his books.
Lord Townshend, Raynham, to Philip Case: discusses tables of annuities for life made by De Moivre, and consequent value of his reversionary interest in his uncle's estate near Yarmouth [his uncle was Horatio Townshend, died 1751]; if sold it will pay off all the encumbrances on his estate; Colonel Townshend does not answer his letters and has clearly discarded him from his good graces; is thinking of settling in another county to avoid these continual jarrings; with copy of formula for calculating value of a reversion.
Notes about Lord Townshend's funeral, bill from William Donne, surgeon, for medicines and attendance, notes of cash at Raynham, list of plate, servants' legacies and wages, orders by Lord Townshend including that Philip Case is to deliver the harpsichord and organ to Mrs Walker, it being her property.
