Letters to Philip Case from Charles Townshend: the formation of a ministry without Pitt, the illegality of general warrants, promotion for Case's nephew James Case, delays in payment of outport corn debentures, 1766, Chatham administration, influence of Lord Bute, elections in Norfolk, 1766-1768, death of Revd Thomas Lowe, 1769, appointment to Treasury and high opinion of North, 1770, Yarmouth election and Townshend's marriage, 1777; with many copy replies.
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.
Charles Townshend, Yarmouth, to Philip Case: very much obliged to him; has now consulted Lord Townshend and will have no need for that favour; news of Yarmouth election; with receipt to Case by John Morse for £300, on same page.
Charles Townshend, St James's Street, to Philip Case: in great difficulty as to qualification for forthcoming election as that made at previous one has been destroyed by his brother's marriage settlement; fears his father won't be able to make another and asks advice; if any freemen of Yarmouth live in Lynn he will pay their expenses to Yarmouth. Cover addressed 'To be sent without Delay to Mr Case wherever he is, & not to be opened by any other Person'.
