|Title||Copy of a letter from Joseph Banks, Soho Square, to Thomas Mudge|
|Date||13 March 1793|
|Description||Although assuring Mudge that he never felt implicated in his censure of Dr Maskelyne, Banks makes clear how unjsutifiable Mudge's actions were.|
Thomas Mudge petitioned Parliament after his Father's instrument to determine Longitude was awarded £500. Mudge believed it should have claimed the higher sums offered by the Board of Longitude and blamed Nevil Maskelyne for this.
