HUME, Joseph (1777-1855). Radical and politician.
Autograph Letter Signed to Daniel O'Connell, 1 page 8vo with address-leaf, Bryanston Square, 9 June 1833. Asking for the support of his friends in a Bill coming before the house the next day.
'There are two private Bills come on tomorrow at 12 o'Cl[o]ck, & which it is understood some opposition is to be made to the one which lowers the qualification of Vestry men from £30 to £20 a year. ...'
It was O'Connell who had obtained the Irish constituency of Kilkenny for Hume in 1837 when he had lost his seat in Middlesex. Hume's support for Catholic and Irish causes and his challenge to every vote on public expenditure enhanced his reputation as a firebrand in parliament.
