From Leonard Jenyns   January 23

Dear Henslow

I have just heard of a voter of the name of W. Portal Esq. of St Johns Coll - who is favourably disposed to Ld. P and it seems doubtful whether he has been applied to. He is at present at Bath, but I understand he is expected in about a weeks time at Warren's Hotel in London. This is all I know of him. I rather think also you have not got J.B. Greenwood of Caius Coll; at least I understood him to say he had not been applied to. He is a barrister in the Temple. He has promised me.

Do wish my election letters to be directed to you at Gothic Cottage or the Committee room. I ask not knowing who pays the postage.

Yrs sincerely

l. Jenyns
