+ A 1,2 §3 Clandestine Murmers to Ld Belgrave

understood — though certainly I had every now and
then been led to suspect an anxious design, under
the cover of apparent carelessness, and conspicuous
indolence. It had already become a part,—
and that an indispensable one — of Mr Long's plan — that all applications from
me, & in relation to my business, should be squeezed matter howsoever ,
into an undefined minimum of time, space, that thereby
they might be divested of stand unsupported by those grounds and reasons,
which, would have if exhibited to the Board,
would have rendered them less conveniently adapted
to the reception
susceptible of that negative to which they had
been predestinated.

My explanation with the Agent of Lord Belgrave
was, I believe, a true and unexpected incident to Mr
Long. Finding himself thus unmasked from this time
forth he could never sustain the sight of me. He grew desperate and four days afterwards, the first day of my catching him — not in his chamber (which would
have been barred against me) but flying past me (as usual)
in one of the passages, Your Lordship will find him

afterwards declared to be to Mr Nepean— to give
Mr Long the opportunity of contesting them, if he
were able.

This letter (I forget ) of mine to Mr Nepean was not sent to him
on the day of its date. I forget why: probably enough
on account of his health which about that time was
frequently so indifferent, as to rend unfit him for all
business. The law But, on Saturday, On the 19th, I delivered it to
him myself (at his house at Fulham) and he
read it in my presence.

Monday, April the 8th, Mr Long not at office: a very
frequent incident: Monday, a rare day with him.
