  1. Ticket: The Trial of Lord Viscount Melville.
  2. This ticket was for the last day of the trial of Lord Viscount Melville on June 12th, 1806. The financial management of the Admiralty, of which Henry Dundas (1st Viscount Melville, Baron Dunira) had been treasurer between 1782 and 1800, aroused suspicion and in 1802 an enquiry commission was appointed. Meanwhile in 1804 Dundas became First Lord of the Admiralty. In 1805 the commission reported its findings. The result of the enquiry was the impeachment of Dundas in 1806 for the misappropriation of public money. Although his trial ended in acquittal, he never again held office. It was the last impeachment trial held in the House of Lords.
    Condition: fair - corners trimmed - dated in ink on the front - period ink pen note on the reverse - slight glue residue to top right hand corner on reverse.
