Found in 8 Collections and/or Records:
He has sounded out Mayor of Belfast; if Marlborough offered him an honour, Mayor would not refuse it; he has been 'a steady and active friend to party not only in Belfast but neighbouring counties.'
Report of Bentinck's views: Bentinck thinks Marlborough was deliberately snubbed on University question; Beaconsfield's conduct was similar to that in Connaught matter; if Marlborough did not resign, he was likely to be dismissed in autumn; no successor would be appointed until after Duke of Connaught's wedding; if Marlborough resigned, his position in Ireland and England would be perfectly intelligible
