A Notes
§.3 Belgrave

all applications from me, should be squeezed into an undefined
minimum of space, that thereby they might stand
unsupported by those grounds & reasons, which, if exhibited
to the Board, would have rendered them less conveniently

rendered an interview unavoidable, Your Lordship will find
him getting the Sollicitor, Mr White, to guard him.—

Fulham) and he read it in my presence — Monday
