This chapter examines the activities and career of British politician Edmund Burke during the period from 1787 to 1788. In the summer of 1787, Burke spent his time writing letters in his estate in Beaconsfield and his attention was mostly on the Dutch crisis. During this period, Burke also participated in the impeachment proceedings against Judge Elijah Impey. Analyses of Burke's letters and writings during this period reveal that he had heated arguments with William Pitt on the Impey impeachment issue.

Keywords:   Beaconsfield, Dutch crisis, impeachment trial, Elijah Impey, William Pitt
