grenfell to ricardo1
Cassiobury2 15 Febry 1818
My dear Sir
I forgot to tell you before I came away yesterday that my friend will agree to nothing short of the Five—without a Guarantee3 —This appears enormous.
You have seen that Vansittart did away what he had before said as to the payment to the Bank of the 6 Mill. before July.4
Will you dine with me on Wednesday at Seven—and meet Tierney—Calcraft5 &c
Yours very truly
I shall be in Town tomorrow by two.

[3 ]£5000 for a seat in Parliament without guarantee of re-election in the event of an early dissolution; cp. below, pp. 276 and 355.
