Lord Townshend, Rabley, to Philip Case: will be at Raynham to execute the exchange deeds and intends to stay for the winter; if Lord Exeter wishes to sell his own life interest in the reversion the two could be sold together; they should not be confined to Norfolk inhabitants but be advertised in some of the London papers; if Case has any scruples about selling the reversion it would be kind and ingenuous to tell him so, and he will find someone in London to do the business for him.
