12 November 1716
Cadogan, William, Earl (1672?-1726)
Autograph letter signed
Title: to Edward Bourke
Replies to GLC1450.446.04, in which Bourke informed Cadogan of a Jacobite plot. Guarantees "a reward equal to the Discovery you shall make" (regarding the discovery of Jacobitism in Cambray). States "I sign this letter by another name than my own, as you [design?], and I send you an address by which you may write Safely..." In a post script, provides instructions to [deliver?] to Mr. John Williams under cover to Mr. Benjamin Furly (possibly a code or pseudonym, since Furly, a Quaker and noted Rotterdam intellectual, had died in 1714). Signed fictitiously by John Williams, a psuedonym Cadogan was using in his correspondence with Bourke.
