NotesOn 21 March 1829 the Duke of Wellington fought a duel with the Earl of Winchilsea, over the
Duke's supposed high-church leanings in supporting the King's College fund. Wellington - a
notoriously bad shot - fired and missed, at which Winchilsea fired in the air. The handkerchief
on the post was sent to Winchilsea by Lord Holland, who found it in the House of Lords and
mistakenly believed it was his. Winchilsea thought the "W" stood for Wellington, and that it had
been sent to him as an insult. See also M0027696MU. Signed [JS Fec] M.D. George No.15696
