YORKE (Charles, 1722-1770, Lord Chancellor who drafted the Constitution for the Province of Quebec)

Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent, explaining that as Lady Leicester has engaged him and his wife to stay with her longer than they had originally intended so he will "not be able to reach Cambridge till Saturday ... I shall ride over to dine with you between two & three ... If the weather should prove as rainy, as it is now fair & settled in these parts, do not expect me. I read over all the pamphlets in my way hither, & would have added something upon them, if the post had staid long enough ... since the conclusion of my morning ride. I commend the discretion as well as weight of the reasoning in your book. The other pamphlets are able performances, but, in some place, err much in discretion at least to a Lay understanding ...", 2 sides 4to., Holkham, 26th September
