     Gibbs writes, "He supported Gladstone's proposals for granting Home Rule to Ireland, and, from his experience of that country and its politicians his adhesion carried consideable weight. 'I question very much whether Lord Spencer was at heart a Home Ruler. By nature obstinate and inflexible... his conversion to Home Rule seemed as remarkable in its way as Sir William Harcourt's. It could only be explained by personal loyalty to Mr. Gladstone, and out and out loyalty to party ... In conversation, or on his feet in the House of Lords, he seemed to me to have no command of happy expression ... I should think that, with all his great qualities of industry, devotion to the public service and personal integrity, Lord Spencer was wanting in ... "vision." ' As Lord Lieutenant of Ireland he displayed courage and firmness in the suppression of criminal conspiracy, which brought down on him showers of Nationalist abuse; it was at the beginning of his second term of office that the Chief Secretary, Lord Frederick Cavendish, was assassinated. In private life he was an upright, high minded man with pleasing manners and a keen sportsman, being thrice Master of the Pytchley."1 He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.3
