AddresseeMcMahon, John, Colonel
DescriptionInforming the Colonel that he will leave the following morning to join Sir Thomas Graham in Antwerp to see the fleet - because Bulow [Friedrich Wilhelm Freiherr von B├╝low, Graf von Dennewitz] could, or would not, move.
The Duke expresses his appreciation of the kindness with which he was welcomed by the Orange family. He reports that Lord Clancarty [Richard Le Poer Trench, 2nd Earl of Clancarty] 'is all attention itself' and he has not been expensive. On the other hand, as the Duke himself is considering the possibility of advancing further on the continent, if he is going to do so, he might need more money.
