1180. Nathaniel White to his brother Cornelius. ''I have been most cordially welcomed & congratulated by all for whom I care a fig & have busied myself in contradicting the misstatements which Barry has been propagating. I find however that little credit was given to them, particularly with regard to our friend Campbell. All now give him much credit for his manly conduct and applaud him for the prompt resentment which he shewed. I am afraid I shall not have time to write him as Snow starts in the morning, but say to him that Barry strutted about town a day or two with his tattered coat until he found himself a laughing stock instead of an object of sympathy and is now content to put by his trophy & attend to his shop.'' Postscript. ''Barry has publicly expressed his satisfaction with your conduct & lauded you to the skies. You can easily see through this. Charles Achibald is in for Truro by a majority of 3 & has gone through a tough scrutiny.'' Holograph.
