TitleLetter; George Banks, Leeds, to [7th Earl of Sandwich?]
DescriptionDetails the distressing state to which the district is reduced: there is a great lack of confidence abroad; failure is hitting all commercial men; unemployment and half-time working is high and still rising. Understands that Manchester and Liverpool have asked for aid in the shape of exchequer bills. "Can any such aid be obtained for this district or can it be obtained to the extent of £50 or £100,000 on the security of real estate or ample security on manufactured goods?" Refers to similar schemes in 1810. Begs "your lordship" to apply immediately to the treasury.
