London the 8th of August 1730.


Receiving the inclosed I waited upon the Lords Commissioners of Trade and shewed them my old list of Councellors without any names against Chief Justice, and Secretary, Coll: Bladen filled them up with his own hand before Mr Pelham and Mr Brudenell; I hope his Grace the Duke of Newcastle (my noble patron) will not be offended; Mr Brudenell has promised to inform his Grace how cautious I behaved in this affair.

There is nothing done yet with Mr Germain tuesday next is appointed for meeting Mr Bowen

I am (Sr) your most humble and most obedient servant
