The Earl of Nottingham

Whom Swift satirized under his nickname of `Dismal'. He was a dreary and formal pedant, who, on grounds of personal discontent, deserted his party on this question. Swift does not scruple to state that his ratting was due to foreign bribes, and refers to the same charge in a letter to Archbishop King.
