DOUBLE DEALING BY MR SAVERY. JT had opposed Orford interest, but became indifferent when a gentleman declined to be a candidate: Mr.S. was anxious to get one. Unknown to JT he had negotiated with Mr. Brooks of Exeter to introduce one of Lord North's family to the borough in opposition to the Orford interest & had offered his house unless provided by Mr. Boone. Mr.S. introduced Mr. Brooke to JT declaring himself bound to the offer of his vote, interest, house etc. on one condition that he was not provided for by Mr. Brooke. Mr. S. exibited Mr. Boone's promises to Ld. North's friend to enhance his claims on him and the opposition against Ld. Orford in order to get provision for himself from Mr. Boone. Mr.S. anxious to perfect his bargain with Mr. Boone, fearing discovery, saying to JT he would defer acting till he saw what could be done with Mr.Boone. JT said No, it would be improper. Mr.S. said he would desert JT, who said he would expose Mr.S. JT would advise the the candidate to decline the affair.
