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.
Colonel George Townshend, Audley Square, to Philip Case: his father's unexpected and undeserved reception of himself and his wife gave him little opportunity of lamenting the venerable trees which lay prostrate; now hears his father is cutting down all the trees at Raynham, begs Case to remonstrate with him on his behalf, and asks what his legal position is; with draft reply by Philip Case, 29 Apr 1755
