Philip Antony Corri / Arthur Clifton:
Letter to Philip Antony Corri from John Broadwood and Son, November 1809
We have received your letter containing the very prejudiced statements of the case you have thought proper to lay before several truly respectable gentlemen. It would ill become us to notice your most insulting and ungentlemanly insinuations. And the purpose of this is to recommend you not to subject yourself to the degrading treatment you might experience should you again enter our house. We are, Sir, yours etc. John Broadwood and Son.

It was moved by Mr. Webbe and seconded by Mr. Neate that 'This Society with feelings of the utmost indignation of the discovery that Mr P. A. Corri has been guilty of atrocious conduct which [makes] him at once a disgrace to his profession, and to Society at large, anxiously hasten to express their horror of having associated with such a man, and do formally expel him from their Body for ever.' [Read to the members of the Philharmonic at General Meeting: January 15, 1817; Entered into minutes.]
