My lord- -1 laid your letter to me, of the 29th December, before tde Corporation of Stratford-upon- Avon, at a meeting of the Council, held yesterday, and the very gratifying task has been imposed apon me by the body corporate of conveying to your Lordship the unanimous wish of the council that you will dotiiem the honour of continuing in the office of High Steward. Tlle council is composed of sixteen members, of whom fourteen were present at the meeting; and I ain requested by the remaining two, who were unavoidably absent, to add taeir names, as fully concurring in the accompanying resolution.— With the greatest respect, I have the honour to remain, your Lordship's most obedient humble servant. VV. O. HUNT. "To the Enrl Delawarr," &c.
