About James Irving, III

..."At an early age, he was sent to Westminster, where he was in the same form with Lord John Russell. He matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford...aged sixteen. "Not a soldier by profession, he was stirred by the events which were passing when quite a young man, and when the Duke of Wellington had gone to Flanders to stop Napoleon, James Irving the Third went to see, what he would have said 'the fun.'... :"He was a man of progress, he was very far-seeing, sanguine, but not visionary. In his political views he was a Radical, pleased rather to find his ideas finding support than really believing in their immediate necessity. "I (Sir Aemilius Irving) can remember his utterance of 45 years ago, can remember the comments of others upon them, but nothing had come to pass and is not now acquiesced in, which he did not foretell and which he did not say would not be fully approved. You will find his name among the early projectors of the Reform Club then being formed at Gwyrdwyr House as "The Westminster," with those of Grote, Tommy Duncombe, and Lord John Russell, and I can well remember the expression his face assumed when he mentioned that they had got Soyer as the Cook."
