Sloane’s last letter has raised Hare’s hopes for a catalogue of medals. He asks that a copy is transcribed and sent to him. At the very least, he would appreciate ‘the Particulars of yor Consulars’. Henry Hare, 2nd Baron Coleraine, was MP for Old Sarum and although his privy chamber office ended with the death of Charles II, he held local offices in Middlesex through the 1680s and 90s. In 1705, he published ‘The History and antiquities of the town and church of Tottenham’ (Nicholas Doggett, Hare, Henry, second Baron Coleraine (bap. 1636, d. 1708), Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Jan 2008 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/12299, accessed 8 July 2013]).
