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
Correspondence of Philip Case with Peter Leheup senior and junior, Sir Edward Williams of Llangoid Castle and his wife Mary, John Lloyd of Peterwell and his wife Eliza, John Noyes and Savage Mostyn, and letters of Charles Wray, Gunthorp, to the Lloyds. The letters relate to settlements made by Sir Edward Williams on his wife, the sale of an estate at Middleton, Norfolk, otherwise called the Lambard estate (Isaac Leheup married Elizabeth Lambard), to Admiral Savage Mostyn (c 1713-1767), and investment of the purchase moneys in the funds. Some letters are franked by Welsh MPs and by the bishop of Llandaff.
Cyril Wyche, Hockwold, to [Philip Case]: instructions for leases; Robert Hankinson is over £200 in arrears; defaulting tenants 'only abuse any kindness or civility they may receive'; thinks he is being overcharged by Collector Turner and Charles Peast, dyke reeves of Gaywood, for banks; asks if some of his tenant Young's men can be got out of Bridewell, as a favour; needs an agent to inspect his Gaywood concern from time to time and would pay £10 10s a year; thinks he has been cheated over purchase of some horses.
Thomas Edwards, at Messrs Fry's & Co., Mildred Court, London, to James Case, Lynn Regis: about a ?gaming debt; 'the Evidence of Lady D goes to say that I was in a state unfit to take Observation of what was doing'.
