Waterloo : Letter from Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington to Sir William Frederick Pollock

Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, Duke of, 1769-1852


<p style='text-align: justify;'>The respect commanded by Wellington in later life is illustrated in this letter to William Pollock of Trinity College, in which he assents, cordially but conditionally, to present to the House of Lords a petition from the undergraduates of the University of Cambridge, drawing on his experience of political and court life to suggest a tactful way forward, given the parallel petition from the Chancellor and Members of the Senate.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Image © Stratfield Saye Preservation Trust.
