Marriott encloses the letter he just received from Lord Bexley. Marriott tells Chase that West's reply is "most censurable" and sure to gain favor for Chase.
Lord Bexley, G. M. West, George Montgomery West
Marriott, G. W., "Letter to Philander Chase" (1831). Philander Chase Letters. 910.
10th Octr 1831
My dear & venerated Friend
I lose not one day in apprizing you that Lord Bexley has sent you another £100, and I enclose his letter just received, to shew you that you owe something to the most censurable Reply of W. May it produce other similar results to you! What good it can do him I cannot conceive. Pray treat Lord B’s letter confidentially. If you received my last too late for deducting the £15, you may on this occasion draw for £85, instead of £100. The Reply has irrevocably disgusted me. May God amend the Writer, & forgive him!
Yrs ever devotedly & affectly
G. W. Marriott
