Bott, Mr

An MP in the following of Plantagenet Palliser, whom Lady Glencora found most objectionable, as he constituted himself her guardian and reported to her husband all her short comings. He later married Mrs. Marsham.

"He was a tall, wiry, strong man, with a bald head and bristly red beard, which, however, was cut off from his upper and lower lip. This was unfortunate, as had he hidden his mouth he would not have been in so marked a degree an ugly man. His upper lip was long, and his mouth was mean" - Can You Forgive Her?
