2pp., 4to. Bifolium. Fair, on lightly-aged paper, with one minor damp stain. Dundas was the last ever British minister to be impeached. He was acquitted of corruption charges on 12 June 1806. Writing a little over two weeks later, Wraxall apologises for not having 'done myself the Honor of calling at Your Lordship's Door, to offer my Felicitations on the Event of the late Business in Westminster Hall [.] no Person could have felt more happy than myself, at the honorable Termination of that Enquiry.' He is writing to enclose a 'Letter from my particular Friend, Lord Gladstone [.] written in answer to my Note informing him of Your Lordship's acquittal'. Gladstone 'would, I know, have been happy to have added one to the Majority on the 12th. of June, if Lady Gladstone's Illness had not prevented him from crossing the Irish Channel.' Wraxall states that he is at the time of writing living in the house of Sir John Macpherson, 'who is down at Cheltenham, in very indifferent Health', and that Macpherson 'was not less sensible of the Triumph of Your Lordship over Party Persecution.'.
