"Dear Duke".

"I have been reading your Silver Plated Spoon with very great interest.... I admire your valiant struggle to preserve Woburn in its historic function...." BR offers a few points of criticism: "Was it not Round who first exposed the Russell claim to have come over with the Conqueror? Was not one of the 18th Century Dukes of Bedford Prime Minister for a time? In one place Odo Russell is alluded to as 'Sir Odo'. Was there ever a time when this was correct?"
