Scope and Content

From W. L. Wellesley [William Pole-Tylney-Long-Wellesley] at Chelmsford, Essex, to the editor of the Morning Herald, re the impending Essex election. He has been accused by another candidate Colonel Tyrell of being related to John Wesley. Far from being ashamed of such a connection, Wellesley takes pride in this link as he does in his relationship to the [Duke of Wellington].
