You should never assume contempt for that which it is not very manifest that you have it in your power to possess, nor does a wit ever make a more contemptible figure than when, in attempting satire, he shows that he does not understand that which he would make the subject of his ridicule.
Viscount Melbourne, of Kilmore in the County of Cavan, was a title created for Peniston Lamb, 1st Baron Melbourne in 1781 in the Peerage of Ireland.
