Lost portrait in Gibbon family

A portrait of the 10th Earl was inherited by his descendants the Gibbon family. They owned it in 1907. Whereabouts now unknown.

Extracts (these two sections run into each other) from letter of 28 Nov 1851 from Elizabeth Gibbon after her mother's death.
She says that "the engraving of Henry Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery" is now in the possession of her illegitimate half-brother, who she calls "Henry S." He does not descend from the Earl of Pembroke.
She is having difficulty getting the picture off him: "I cannot find words to express Henry S's [illegible]".
She angrily says: "I have an idea that to strangers he intends passing him off as his grandfather."
