“Lancaster, Monday, 1813.

“You will think it rather cool my not coming to town as soon as possible in the present state of affairs, but I have two reasons. I think Mrs. Prinnie will be insisting on some further measures the moment she sees me, and I wish it to subside into an arrangement before I return. I shall come up as soon as they begin to negociate. My other reason is a degree of dislike of the whole concern, which has, in spite of
myself, come over me since the row with the Commissioners, especially on account of
Erskine. The blackening of Ellenboro’ is not sufficient to counterbalance this. I can’t help thinking the omission of the questions venial, as long as the evidence was not published; and then the charge agt. the Comms. was only their going beyond the inquiry assigned to them, and recommending a sort of censure on an ex parte proceeding. Which was wrong, I think; but one can’t help regretting anything which damages, not Grenville, but the whole Whigs. This should always be avoided if possible.”
