PP/GC/ME/320 Memorandum from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, concerning Derbyshire, a “wild, conceited chap”, October 1839
Memorandum from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne: thinks it would be well to do as he proposes an mention the matter to Brunnow but not as if he places full reliance on the information. Derbyshire is evidently a “wild, conceited chap” ready to go anywhere for anything. Melbourne does not much like his connections and patrons: Long Wellesley, Ellice and Durham. At the same it must be remembered that he gave Durham information which turned out to be correct. Oct 1839
