About the Authors
  • Sir Benjamin Keene (1697–1757) was the most eminent of the British diplomats sent as Ambassador to Spain in the eighteenth century. This book, originally published in 1933, reproduces the text of his personal correspondence from 1730 to his death. The letters cover a wide variety of subjects, both diplomatic and more intimate, and will be of value to anyone with an interest in British relations with Spain up to the outbreak of the Seven Years' War.
