    Scope and Content
    Refers to possessions in which they have a joint interest and to formalities in connection with these; states that Lady Russell, being naturalised in France, has an absolute right to the possessions of his father should he not be in a position to enjoy these himself; notes she also has a claim to his mother's possessions through her will, but observes that wills have little validity in France; refers to her intention of allowing him to enjoy these possessions during his lifetime; states his view that steps they are taking will achieve nothing but agrees, against his judgement, to go along with it if it is felt necessary in the interests of safeguarding their rights in some future and more favourable time.
    Refers to a letter received from Lord Tavistock; notes the high opinion he holds of him and his temptation, were he not prevented by his office, to join him in travelling, not in France, but throughout the rest of the world.
    Refers to the new Duke of Bolton who believes his presence is necessary in England although the King wishes him to remain there.
