This small series includes scribal copies of political documents probably copied for use by the Earl and Hobbes and circulated to other upper servants of the Cavendish household. They may have passed these documents amongst themselves, prompted by events or discussions.
Skinner makes the link between HS/G/2 and HS/G/3 to HS/D/5 showing that the 4th Earl was involving Hobbes in his political business of 1679 and providing copies of these documents in relation to seeking Hobbes's advice on political matters.
The documents are similar in nature to some of the material found in the separate Hardwick Drawers collection (GB 2495 H) and Hardwick Manuscripts collection (GB 2495 HMS) at Chatsworth.The presence of them here rather than in either of those collections may only be a result of the circumstance of Hobbes's death. Perhaps, had he not died in 1679 these papers would have been passed on, no longer among Hobbes's affairs, and others may have been in their place.
