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.
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.
