400. Jas. Clarke to Gideon White, in receipt of letter. He thinks that in time White will be appointed to succed McEwen. "The Election Business I believe has made me many Enemies. However I have this Consolation that I have acted like an honest Man and that Shelburne is represented by a Gentleman of Integrity and Abilities an Ornament to his Country and an Honour to those who elected him - Mr. Ross by his Conduct has astonished even his best friends here, and I am sure those in Shelburne must feel not a little disgusted in knowing that he positively refused to sign the Requistion for a Scrutiny lest it should involve him in an Expense...Colo. Tongue connected himself with McNeill & Leckie, who availed themselves of that Connexion to serve Largin." Holograph.
