A skeleton in the cupboard: James West and the Portland Papers

1989

Abstract

IN an earlier article in this issue (pp. 123-33), Clyve Jones has surveyed the main collections which make up the archive of Robert Harley, first Earl of Oxford. Another small group of strays which is worth noting are the letters to Oxford and his son's father-in-law, John Holies, Duke of Newcastle, in British Library, Lansdowne MS. 1236. Investigation of their provenance uncovers a tale of blackmail and theft and political intrigue.
