In Lord Beaconsfield's ' Letters,' edited by Ralph Disraeli (1887 ed., p. 146), under date of February, 1839, there is the following : There has been a row at Crockford's and Ude dismissed. He told the Committee he was worth 10,000 a year. ... He told Wombwell that in spite of his 10,000 a year he was miserable in retirement. In vol. ii. of Lord Beaconsfield's 'Life,' by Monypenny, pp. 39 and 40, the same incident is referred to, thus : 13 Oct. 1838. He told the Committee he was worth 4,000 a year. ... He told Wombwell in spite of his 4,000 a year, &c. Can anyone suggest any explanation for this discrepancy in the figures ? I should also be glad to know the date and place of Tide's death.
