W. Vernon-Harcourt : pamphlet attacking Lord Derby

Lord Lyndhurst to Lord Strangford [1854]: 'I never hear Disraeli speak in any way unfriendly of [John Wilson] Croker, and was very much surprised and annoyed when I read "Coningsby," and was told that one of the characters was meant to represent him. Disraeli never spoke to me upon the subject. 'I think the biography [of Disraeli] is a very blackguard publication, and written in a very blackguard style. I don't know who Mr. Vernon-Harcourt is, though I read last year a pamphlet written by him, attacking Lord Derby somewhat in a similar manner, but with more scanty materials.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Lord Lyndhurst
