Before A 6 Connectg Observs

§.3 The Establishment betrayed to Ld Belgrave

was that Mr Long or any other person by name had in
Aerminis made this or any other promise. What he did give
me to understand and in a manner not to be mistaken —
for I pressed him upon it to the very verge of decency —
was — that the assurance obtained by his noble principals
was a satisfactory one — and such as I should find their
conduct governed by beyond a doubt. I produced him a
letter, an official Letter, signed Charles Long assuming the
continuation of the plan as usual announcing money as
about to be issued to me for buying out the Leases upon
the Salisbury Estate and calling upon me to enter into
treaties with the Lesses about the terms. "Why, Sir," (says I)
"if what you tell me be correct, this letter is of itself enough
"to cover them with infamy".— He took it — read it — returned
it — and said it made no difference. Not long after I
met him in the street by accident — He came up to me —
took up the subject of himself — addressed me in the
accents — spoke of my fate as fixed — saying, "there was nobody
"but must sympathize with me".—

J.B. produced to Boodle
Long's Letter about buying
out Leases — he said
it made no difference

Notwithstanding thus assurance — and notwithstanding
the almost six years assurance I had then already had of
Mr Long — an experience which had afforded me more than
one similar result — averse beyond measure to import
treachery, & such treachery" — catching at every straw — looking
up on this occasion to the hoped for result of an
already experienced support from Mr Nepean, I still flattered
myself that there might have been some mistake — that
some general expression of attention might have been accepted
as a specific promise — and that perhaps the
noble proprietors of the Grosvenor Estate might have been
too sanguine. At the worst the same man who by one
improvidence had been led to break his faith, in spiteof

J.B. thought Ld Belgrave
might be too sanguine
at any rate Long
might be brought back
by fear & shame to
as justice
