About This Item

This English politician, statesman and philanthropist served Parliament as a Whig and for more than half a century filled important posts such as Chancellor of the Exchequer, Home Secretary and Lord President of the Council. ALS, 2pp (lettersheet), Bowood (Calne, Wiltshire, U.K.), n.d. Addressed to "Dear Bowles" (William Lisle Bowles, 1762-1850, poet, critic and clergyman). Near fine. Writing from the family estate of "Bowood," Lansdowne invites his friend to dinner on Monday, noting cryptically that "You will perhaps meet an acquaintance, not Rogers." Referring perhaps to an essay Bowles had published, Lansdowne also notes, "I quite assent to your criticism on light -- the lines were really not worth the thought you bestowed on them...." Signed simply "Lansdowne" and neatly penned in brown ink. In a postscript Lansdowne adds, "I have some notion that Bingham is with you, if he is pray bring him to Bowood on Monday." Reverend Peregrine Bingham (1756-1826) was a well-known clergyman and also a poet and biographer -- as well as husband of Bowles' daughter. A nice example with great associations.
