cornwallis (3528 words)
Frederick entered the Church, was ordained at an early age, was rapidly advanced and became successively Bishop of Lichfield, Dean of London and finally in 1768, Archbishop of Canterbury.
Cornwallis was described at this time as of slender build, somewhat over middle height, an aristocrat to his finger tips, conscious of his dignity, inclined to be cool and ceremonious, except when his "great temper" took charge of him, possessing a pleasant voice, fine eyes, and a winning expression.
Cornwallis' past services and the influence of powerful friends, however, brought about the exoneration of the three colonels, though for many months their conduct was the subject of caricature and ridicule.
