Content Description

Dance has written to say that he should come to dine with R. Smirke and the Daniells in order to settle who to "push" for at the next election, R. Smirke or W. Daniell; Lawrence thinks this indelicate as does R. Smirke; he thinks it is "insanity" to push for W. Daniell in the face of R. Smirke, Wilkie and Ward; Robert Smirke is to call on him about it.
