The 'Letter' dated 19 March 1833, to the chairman of the Middlesex magistrates (one of whom was Soane), is signed 'John Easthope'. Easthope's purpose in publishing these extracts was to influence his fellow magistrates against the election to the bench of 'Mr. Rotch', a barrister who had attempted to implicate Easthope in the conspiracy to return particular candidates for the Borough of Evesham. Another 'Letter' from Easthope was published later in the same year (q.v.).
