Sir John Turner, Pall Mall, to Philip Case: thanks for his advice and his 'tender & genteel' manner of introducing it; was unable to meet unreasonable terms of Sir Thomas Gooch to pay off the mortgage, and ejectments were served; asks if there is any way to keep Gooch out of possession to give Turner time to raise the money.
Sir John Turner, Pall Mall, to Philip Case: as requested, is appointing Robert Overman, a kinsman of Case's brother's wife, as tide waiter at Wells; nothing has happened about the ejectments; thanks for Case's letter of advice but is surprised he didn't write sooner, and that his objections to his want of proper economy should be made immediately upon his income being considerably augmented; wishes to discuss 'conduct of a certain person'.
Sir John Turner, Pall Mall, to Philip Case: asks him to pay Miss Young some of her interest on account; hopes to see him at Warham at Christmas when he will have a party that is 'tolerably jolly according to ancient custom'.
Thomas Walpole, London, to Philip Case: Lord Orford and Mr Molineux have had a conference at Euston about the latter's being brought into parliament at the first opportunity; Lord Orford exceedingly warm on the behaviour of some of his old friends at Lynn; he is now broke with the Turners and determined the collectorship should be put into other hands; a representation is to be drawn up for the duke of Grafton as to the collector's misconduct towards the town; election of Wilkes for Middlesex may have consequences 'if it is too seriously treated'; asks Case to look out for an estate for him in Norfolk. With copy reply from Case

Cyrill Wyche, Hockwold, to Philip Case: trouble with various tenants; poor opinion of the wine he has received, the red is poor and thin and the Mountain far from being pure and perfect; will buy Case's cast-off saddle horse to run in the post chaise and will not higgle about the price 'as with a common jockey'; his housekeeper has £100 in the Old South Sea Annuities at 4%, thinks she could get 5% elsewhere and asks Case to advise; sends draft apprenticeship indenture of Sarah Scott to a mantua maker at Bury, for which he will pay, including liberty for her to go to school for instruction in reading, writing, etc.
