Amazing book, written almost 100 years ago! I was touched by many of its stories, such as the death of Viscount Andover in a hunting accident and of Thomas Coke's beloved first wife, Jane Dutton. I also never realized the pivotal role that Thomas Coke had in ending the war with the American colonies. I will be definitely including excerpts of this great book for my book, "Lord Sherborne". For example, I learned that Sherborne previously was referred to as "Shireborne".
