Sir John A. bore an uncanny likeness to famed Victorian British Prime Minister and novelist Benjamin Disraeli. These two leaders once even dined together, privately, at Disraeli’s country estate in England. Disraeli was very impressed with the Canadian leader and wrote a glowing report about Sir John A. after the dinner in a private letter.
