And, though he talked of ' 'ouses' and 'horgans' he wrote good English with great rapidity, and was possessed of that special sort of political fervour which shows itself in a man's work rather than in his conduct" (Finn 1:26:217).An important character in Phineas Finn, Phineas Redux and The Prime Minister.
