GRENVILLE, William Wyndham, Baron (1759-1834). Prime Minister 1806-1807.
Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent, 2 pages 8vo with second leaf (bearing traces of mounting), Dropmore, 23 May 1821. A good letter written in Grenville's retirement at his country estate in Buckinghamshire, showing his continued interest, albeit without personal involvement, in the political scene.
'... It is very satisfactory to know that at last this channel of evasion is closed against the clandestine pursuit of this horrible iniquity. And every such measure extends its effect in the way of example far beyond its own immediate operation.
 'The great obstacle to complete success is I fear now to be found in the prevailing sentiment in France. ...'
Provenance: from a collection formed by A.M. Broadley in 1903.
[No: 24713]
