DescriptionGeorge Thornhill Esq. to Fellowes. Had believed he was the candidate turned to for lack of someone else as soon as the old Duke died, though had written to say how much he regretted having consented to become a candidate as he believed it would benefit neither the county nor the Conservative Party. Some decision required, would be a relief to him to refuse, especially as there is no immediate prospect of a vacancy.
