     He was a Whig, but it is remarked in an obituary notice that "timidity and variableness of temperament prevented his rendering much service to, or being much relied on by, his party ... With a great predisposition to over-estimate the importance of ancient birth ... he well deserved to be considered the proudest man in England."1 Cockayne quotes "Lord Lamington, in The Days of the Dandies, writes of him 'never was such a magnifico as the 10th Duke, the Ambassador to the Empress Catherine; when I knew him he was very old, but held himself straight as any grenadier. He was always dressed in a military laced undress coat, tights and Hessian boots, &c'. Lady Stafford, writing to her son, Granville Leveson-Gower, mentions 'his great Coat, long Queue, and Fingers cover'd with gold Rings', and his foreign appearance. His chief characteristic, according to his obituary in Gentleman's Magazine was 'an intense family pride'. His collection of paintings, objects of vertu, old books and manuscripts were sold for £397,562 in July 1882, the manuscripts (under 700 in number) being bought by the German government for £80,000. Some of these were repurchased by the British government and are now in the British Museum. They were edited by J. Bain, for the Scottish Record Publications, in which series they appear as The Hamilton Papers. They throw much light on the relations between England and Scotland in the sixteenth century."3
