Murder[edit]

I've taken the liberty of restoring the link to Elizeus Burges, Horden's killer. Burges himself is of some little note (briefly commissioned as Governor of Massachusetts, later minister resident in Venice). Moreover, Horden's killing, following close on the mortal wounding of Henry Fane in a duel, helped establish for him such a reputation as a rakehell that Jeremiah Dummer wound up bribing him to keep him out of the Governorship of Massachusetts.

Fine, but would you consider creating a stub for Burges? I hadn't heard of him, but he sounds amply colourful notable enough. The bare name here, without a live link, looks a little pointless. Bishonen | talk 12:02, 16 October 2012 (UTC).
