Regular price $100.00 Sale

"A noble lord" refers to Earl Fitzwilliam. In this letter, Burke criticizes the Duke of Bedford and the Earl of Lauderdale, Whigs who supported the French Revolution. Bedford had mocked Burke's pension, which, along with supporting the French Revolution, was for Bedford an example of a nobleman not behaving as he should.
