I received a copy by Paulina of Mr. Stone's letter to Ld. B. - & a letter from Mr. Stone himself. JHS wished he would communicate with Ld. Rolle. The subject of their case was very well treated but the offer of a big reduction in the Corporation's debt seemed too much etc. JHS did not know the value of the India Bonds etc. but after extras were paid he believed Lady J. and PS were entitled to £30,000. He was sorry about the dispute with Broughton etc. He wished Charles was appointed to the Administration, Lord Rolle implied there was little change there. He recommended sending the letter to Ld. Buckinghamshire. Horrible murder of Mr. Percival. The scum of the people out in crowds firing pistols etc. with the slogan 'Bellingham for ever' etc. They dispersed quietly at 11pm when it rained. The Guard was doubled. Anxiety about Monday's holiday - The Regt. might go to Leeds or towards Manchester. JHS knew nothing about the Corporation's dispute about a tree.
