Serious letter of advice. PE apparently is about to further a young man's career by finding him a situation abroad. Bedford warns against action which may give rise to a future claim from the young man's mother and sister, who will no longer have his support.
Spearman has asked him to recommend Abbott, recently enrolled at St Alban Hall - formerly in the Light Horse Volunteers, and now seeking ordination as he has to support his family following the death of his father.
Urgently persuades PE to take care of himself, and before he returns to Oxford to consult Dr Paris of Dover Street (John Ayrton Paris) - no reason why he and Kidd (Regius Professor should not work together, despite separation of 56 miles. PE to tell Kidd that his salary as Regius Professor is now payable at the Exchequer.
Bigge has seen a Dr Holland - all are united on the sort of exercise PE should take, and also that he should not go to Paris. Has been to Waddon and heard that PE has enquired about a horse - strongly urges the risks of this, and to allow him and Bigge to purchase a chaise instead. (Note from Wynn - supports Bedford in every detail.)
Pleased at a letter from PE - then shocked to see that it was dictated to his niece. Regards from Hallam. Proposes a visit - will stop by Dropmore on the way back. Has been in communication with Lord Grenville, and hopes Lord G. will not be disappointed in him when they meet. May see Wynn at Dropmore on his way to see PE...if he can be spared from the Cabinet.
Has just left Dropmore - no letter awaited him from PE, so hopes that no news is good news. Kidd gave him a good account of PE. Enquires after leg and and the red spot thereon, and wishes that both are diminishing.
