E. Burch, to the President [Joshua Kirby]


15 Nov 1769



Extent & medium

1 piece, 1p.

Content Description

Declining re-election as a Director, and commending the suitability of [Nathaniel] Marchant as his replacement. Burch adds in a postscript that he had communicated his decision to a few friends in private on the day before the election, and had since received no summons or notice as a Director, a fact he could not easily account for, as the porter had regularly brought him every summons before that.
