Diplomatic papers of Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, 1720-1748.

The papers are particularly valuable for two periods: 1728-1732, when Chesterfield was Ambassador at The Hague; and 1743-1748, when he was Ambassador on Special Mission to The Hague, Secretary of State for the North, and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. An unusually large number of important diplomatic and political figures appear in the collection. Included is correspondence with Horatio and Robert Walpole, Thomas Lascelles, Stephen Poyntz, Luke Schaub, Walter Titley, Edward Weston, the Duke of Newcastle, and Lords Waldegrave, Townshend, Harrington and Grantham. Also included are major treaties, drafts, and memoranda. These papers illumine not only Chesterfield's affairs but provide a view of the major trends in European diplomatic history as well.
