Exuberantly vituperative in print as Peter Pindar, Wolcot was of an attractive and sympathetic character, generous to friends and a welcome guest, even in great houses such as Fonthill, where he allayed any anxieties his host William Beckford had by his charming behaviour in a party which included Nelson and Emma Hamilton.” He knew or was known to almost every person of note in his time, although today he is virtually unheard of.
