TitleCopy of letter to Sir George Warren from Edward Downes
Date8 Jun 1791



I wished to have seen You myself, to have talked with you on several matters openly & honourably; & I trusted to have received from You candid & gentlemanlike answers, & such behaviour as would demand my respect & my confidence, rather than affront the gentleman, & lessen the esteem of your friend. The character I mean to support is that of the man of honour. I will oblige in every 'proper' instance those I can Confide in; & I will vigorously exert my very utmost efforts to secure justice to myself, & to all I am connected with. Evasively as You have behaved, You can expect no favour from Me, no confidence to be put in any promises You make, & no further delay to be suffered of such measures, as are necessary, when we are involved in concerns with the selfish. I am well advised how to act & leave Town in a few hours. I should be happy to remain,/Sir, yr.servt. in friendship,

Edward Downes.
