     Macky said that "it is odds, if he lives long enough, but he is a Duke. He is of fair complexion and has the gravity of a Spaniard, is as cunning as a Fox, wise as a Serpent and as slippery as an Eel."2 Macaulay wrote that he "seems to united two different sets of vices ... Among the hills he had learned the barbarian pride and ferocity of a Highland chief. In the Council chamber he had contracted the deep taint of treachery and corruption ... Nobody who knew him could trust him... The depths of this man's knavery were unfathomable."2 He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.5
