Sir, Several gentlemen of the corporation have assured me they should most willingly have given me their support at the last court, if they had no[t] been apprehensive and intantians were, of any rate, to remove temple-bar, and that an enormous expenditure was exclusively to come out of the chamber of London. An honourable alderman acknowledge it was a most desirable improvement, by thought as it, was a publics benefit, it ... Parliament, I know ... characters who stand in a more respectable situation than that gentleman and his colleagues, to introduce and forward it in the House of Commons. That I may be clearly understood on this measure, which i think of the first importances as a general accommodation, and of considerable consequence to the trade of the city of London, I have thought it right to convey, to every member of corporation, the words of the motion which I [shall] have the honour to submit at the next court, and likewise a copy of my explantory letter, to the representatives, on the subject. ...
