Scope and content

7 Camden St., Camden Town - His friend Libri has just bought a Newton letter, part of letters bought by Rodd in 1847, to Sir John of Lincoln [probably John Newton] dated May 23, 1715 - four days after Halifax's death [Charles Montagu, Earl of Halifax] - in which he writes: ''The concern I am in for the loss of my Lord Halifax, and the circumstances in which I stand related to his family will not suffer me to go abroad till his funeral is over''. He believes Newton was related to Halifax through his niece.
