Sir William Trumbull and the Marquis of Halifax

Mark N. Brown

Abstract

'I burn your letters at your request', wrote George Savile, the first Marquis of Halifax, to Sir William Trumbull on 22 March 1685/6. Indeed, the only letters between them to have survived are six from Halifax, written between 1686 and 1695, which are merely complimentary or deal with matters affecting his Huguenot sister-in-law. For further evidence of their friendship one must turn to manuscript copies of three of Halifax's four political works that circulated in this format before being printed.
