DescriptionAsking permission 'to remain with the Princess my Mother; this point is of too great consequence to my happiness for me not to wish ardently Your Majesty's favour & indulgence in it'; on John, Earl of Bute: 'I presume most humbly to lay before Your Majesty this my most ardent request, & my only one with regard to an Establishment Your Majesty most graciously intends for me; nothing can make me happier, or fill my mind with warmer Gratitude, than Your Majesty's gracious condiscention, in favour of a person, whom early and long acquaintance has so naturaly pointed out to my preferance; and of whose Duty and Zeal for Your Majesty, I have the most certain knowledge. I humbly hope that this request, will appear so reasonable to Your Majesty, that I shall on this occasion, experience the same Paternal tenderness which has hitherto so much contributed to my happiness and the continuance of which I shall ever think my greatest comfort'
