About this record

Content

Letter informing Pelly that had he realised accusations had been made against Pelly he would have 'obtained the Duke's disavowal in the house', and commenting that the reason that no one has answered the statements made in the Duke's book is that no one has read it. He also returns the papers Pelly had sent him.

The letter appears to be dated 22 May, but as Pelly's first letter to Lord Salisbury on the matter is dated 23 May this date seems unlikely.
