TitleLetter to Millicent, Duchess of Manchester, from Conway R. Dobbs
DescriptionSorry not to have seen the Duke at Tandragee. The Duke must not be annoyed at Mr Jameson's attack; he has heard about a letter to the Times. The Duke acts from high motives - "this unfortunate country" needs more land laws. Further comments on the situation in Ireland, including the loss of the potato crop and the danger of depending on a root crop for a country's food supply. "Wretched population living in hovels not fit for a pig".
