Text Appearing After Image:
264 THE LIVES AND WORK OF ROBERT AND JAMES ADAM Possibly on this account and, perhaps, owing to a desire to relievehimself of extraneous responsibilities, Adam withdrew from Parlia-mentary life and did not again sit in any of the subsequent assemblies.As Adam retired, his nephew, William Adam, the son of the eldestof the brothers, entered Parliament for the first time. WilliamAdam was the politician who subsequently became Lord HighCommissioner of the Scottish Jury Court. At the time when heentered Parliament, he was a young man twenty-three years ofage, who had been called to the Scottish Bar. Five years laterhe became a follower of Lord North and so gave rise to the remarkof Charles Fox, which led to the duel between Adam and thefamous Whio- leader.
