Letter, 1790 June 18, Cambridge, to [Elizabeth Charlton Montagu]

Autograph letter from Matthew Robinson Montagu, the future 4th Baron Rokeby, to his wife, Elizabeth Charlton Montagu, dated June 18, 1790 from Cambridge. Montagu had come to Cambridge in order to be there in time for the British general election of 1790. He notes that the majority was "for Mr Pitt" and regrets having made his journey, as he had "particular reasons to wish to remain with Wilberforce." He hopes that he will be able to be home the following Sunday, and hopes that their "dearest and best friend" (probably his aunt, Elizabeth Montagu) has made it back from Bath in good health. Originally purchased with a letter from Elizabeth Montagu to William Pulteney, now housed and cataloged separately as ba MS. 2010.018.
