John Paget, letter to his son Guy, 3 Sept. 1867.
(preserved in Leicestershire Record Office)
46 Euston Sq. N.W. 3rd Sept 1867

My Dear Guy,

[the letter begins by warning Guy against a certain George Melly] . . . impulsive, hasty,inaccurate, mere wax in the hands of such a man as your uncle Tertius & his judgmentis, in no degree, to be relied upon. His account of Grandmother may have some foun- 5 LRO DE/4795/49. The letter survives in the form of a typewritten copy, to which notes have beenappended, presumably by Reginald, Lord Paget. The first few lines have been omitted.

150 dation in fact (because of her age). As to your Aunt Géraldine she has played for £20,000 a year, she has got it & may possibly now find how very little mere moneymay do. Let us look back at the facts. Your Grandfather promised me an equal share inhis property with your uncle. Your grandmother., your Uncle and your aunt Géraldinepractising on his fears and his enfeebled intellect induced him to leave almost thewhole of his property to your Uncle Tertius and that made his latter years miserablewith remorse for the injustice he had inflicted on me, on your mother, your sister andyourself. Finding himself compelled to devise some excuse for thus appropriating my propertyto himself your Uncle invented the most abominable slander on my conduct & character& though repeatedly challenged either to prove their truth or to admit their falsehood hedoes neither. Is it possible for you with a fitting regard to the respect due to me & toyourself to take any step towards the renewal of intercourse with such a man? By your Grandmother's desire I went to Hastings in April (last year) & had a longinterview with her. She feels no interest in me, in your mother, your sister or yourself.Every feeling is centred on your Uncle Tertius and she desires a renewal of intercoursebecause she feels that whilst we stand aloof her great wealth is no protection against thecontempt of the world. The great desire of your Uncle has been to create dissension amongst us. Hitherto hehas failed. I hope he will continue to do so. I cannot conceal from you that if you were togo to Humberstone it would place me in a position of great difficulty & discomfort. You& I should then be pursuing antagonistic lines of conduct. Your Uncle Tertius wouldimmediately say - cYou see as soon as Guy is a free man he takes the first opportunity ofrepudiating his father & marking his disapproval of his conduct'. Others would impute toyou (falsely I know) a desire to make up with your Uncle for the sake of his wealth. When I talked these matters fully over with Sir John McNeill & asked him if he wouldgive me any advice or suggestion he said 'The only advice I can give you is to do nothingthat shall fetter the future action either of yourself or of Guy. It is impossible to foreseewhat may occur. Do nothing'. Upon this I have acted, & I have felt the wisdom of theadvice. If you were to take the step you suggest you would greatly fetter my future actions. My very earnest advice is that you should not go to Humberstone. If after reading this letter & reconsidering the matter you do not agree with me at anyrate do nothing until you have seen me. On a matter of so much importance you mightpossibly ask for leave of absence for a day & as one that concerns me so it is notunreasonable that I should be fully consulted before you act. I sit at the Thames Thursday, Friday & Saturday in this week. I have very good accounts of your Mother. Let me hear from you. Believe me, always my dear Guy, most affectly. yrs. J.P.
