And then followed the challenge which, when O'Connell declined it, was fastened on his son Morgan, and the interruption of the duel by seizure of Mr Disraeli in his bed, and his famous appearance in the Marylebone police court.
And Disraeli had another promise to redeem: that which he uttered when he told O'Connell that they would meet again at Philippi.
