Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - He and his wife will be pleased to dine with Hubrecht on 5 June; will let him know as soon as possible whether Charles and George will be in the Hague in time to come too. In response to Hubrecht's questions, encloses a letter from Mr Ellis [13/50], a 'solicitor of the highest order", nephew of Sir George's uncle [Macaulay]'s 'now well-known old friend, Thomas Flower Ellis', and son of his father's family solicitor. This explains that Robert and Elizabeth's marriage will make 'the settlement irrevocable'; the circumstances which would invalidate the covenant are, he 'hope[s] and believe[s], impossible'. Has lost his copy of the marriage contract: thought he had returned it to Hubrecht, after having read it through with Mr Ellis, both having been 'fully satisfied'.
