|Title||Copy of a letter from Joseph Banks, Soho Square, to William Windham MP|
|Date||17 March 1793|
|Description||On Banks believing Windham is determined to confer "public reward" to Thomas Mudge (who Banks refers to as Windham's "Devonshire friend").|
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.
