From THE DUKE OF BUCCLEUCH
MS., GUL Gen. 1035/159; unpubl.
Bath, 26 Nov. 1780
My Dear Sir
I am now within two Stages of Bath, expecting that the Waters are to strengthen my stomach which is already better than when I left Scotland. The Advocate1 will explain to you what is to be done about the vacant place at your Board, he will inform you that Nelthrope2 has some chance of being removed but in what way I do not know. I think Gala3 might be provided for in a better way, and more suited to his abilities. When I say ‘better’ I do not mean, more honorable or lucrative than what you proposed. London is quite dull and quiet at present, but you may expect violent Storms after Xmas, if the opposing Parties can unite and agree, at present I believe they cannot. All my family are well.
I am yours Sincerely
[1 ]Henry Dundas.
[2 ]William Nelthorp, up to this time one of the Commissioners of Customs. His name does not appear on later board documents, e.g. that of 19 Dec. 1780, SRO GD 24/1/591, to Lord Kames, so it is likely that he was removed.
[3 ]Not traced.
