ABINGDON (Willoughby Bertie, Lord) Speech of the Earl of Abingdon,  on His Lordship's Motion for Postponing the Further Consideration of the Question for the Abolition of the Slave Trade: with some Stricture on the Speech of the Bishop of St. Davids, Debrett, [1793]
23 pp. title a little dust soiled, small hole in last page affecting one letter, stitched as issued,
This speech, delivered on the 11th April, 1793, uncharacteristicly rails against the New Thinking, the Rights of Man and French Philosophers. Abingdon's sympathies were known to be with the French Revolution from his pamphlet "A Letter to Lady Loughborough" - 1798, but he is quite clear in this pamphlet that "Anarchy now rules in France."
