The elder brother of Charles and Sir Francis Baring, John Baring was a leading Exeter citizen and an MP from 1776. While in reality a sleeping partner, he was also the nominal head of John and Francis Baring & Co. of London, and John and Charles Baring & Co. of Exeter. 1 page, 8vo. In good condition. Apparently to his solicitors, concerning the drafting of his will. 'As my wish is to keep my home &c at perfectly distinct from my other property - be pleased on failure of Mr Shorts Children to let it go to my generally'. Regarding a certain bequest, he enquires whether 'the previous bequest of those lands should be void -'. 'I could wish that the draft be layn before Mr Romilly [presumably Sir Samuel Romilly] - is it possible that I receive it again in the week - I am anxious to finish the matter before I leave town which I wish to do in the next week & it is that to save time I send this by the Post'.
