More Caution? Rejoice!

I have just received Hoar’s answer to my information.

He says “I rejoice to think that I prepared the Drafts of the Marriage Settlements on the cautious plan which I have adopted.

I have done them without any reference to the projected sale to Mr. Claughton, which I was well aware might end in talk, and I have therefore vested the Newstead Estates in the Trustees for the purpose of Sale generally, and so they must stand…”

He adds afterwards that Mr. Hanson should be urged to have the Ingrosments instantly perfected, and sent or brought into the country in their present form, without a day’s further delay – for which there can be no reasonable ground, or even pretext.

Everything rests with you – I can’t say any more that which is known to you.

Seaham Hall (December 12 1814)
