This chapter examines the activities and career of British politician Edmund Burke during the period from 1785 to 1786. Burke was elected and assumed office as a Member of Parliament in August 1785. During this period he spoke mostly about Indian issues. After the Treaty of Versailles in 1783, Burke rarely had occasion to speak in Parliament on American affairs. And in February 1786 he failed to attend the debate on Duke Richmond's proposed dockyard fortifications.
