Title: A letter to the Rt. Hon. Edmund Burke: in reply to the insinuations in the ninth report of the Select Committee, which affect the character of Mr. Hastings, 1783
Author: John Scott Waring
A first edition of Waring’s letter to the Rt. Hon. Edmund Burke: in reply to the insinuations in the ninth report of the Select Committee. This letter was addressed to Edmund Burke as a precursor to the failed impeachment of Warren Hastings. Charges against Hastings could have been dropped and the several year trial completely avoided, if Waring did not insipidly choose to remind Burke of the notice that was given for the point of bringing this to Parliament.
