Memoirs of Edward Earl of Sandwich

Excerpt from Memoirs of Edward Earl of Sandwich: 1839 1916, With Portraits and Illustrations

The task was probably not a very congenial one to Lord Sandwich, but he was urged to accomplish it by many friends, amongst whom was the late Lord Redesdale.

In the diaries and letters covering the early and middle portions of his life, we find much that is of interest. The writer reveals himself as a man of the world, a lover of Society at home and abroad, a man with a tender heart that is easily touched by any of the tragedies of life, whether of poverty or illness, but one who covered his rather sensitive nature with a cloak of sarcasm. In everything that he writes there is a personal note and very frequently a touch of humour. Whether he is describing a Royal marriage or an elusive tiger-hunt in which, unlike most sports men, he did not kill or even see the tiger, he has always an eye for the comic side of things.
