There are allusions to his services as a Commissioner of 'a certain great board' (the Admiralty), and to the hospitality of his villa in Essex [Bifrons]. Miss C------m is said to be the natural daughter of a late Irish peer of that name, educated at a capital boarding school in Kensington, and to have been drugged and seduced by Lord B.
