Sir William Trumbull and the Marquis of Halifax



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.
