“. . . Lord Dacre said to me one day lately:—‘Do you know, Creevey, how Brougham came to take the title of Vaux? because, you know, it is my title; but as I don’t care about such things, I have never done or said anything about it. The title, however, is mine.’ . . . As Vaux has not enough upon his hands, he has opened his batteries in the Times of to-day against Lady Jersey in a longish and bitter article. She is mad in her rage against our Reform, and moves heaven and earth against it wherever she goes according to her powers; but those powers are by no means what they used to be. In short, she is like the rotten boroughs—going to the devil as fast as she can.”
