Page 474 - Your friends have a privilege to play upon the easiness of your temper, or possibly they are better acquainted with your good qualities than I am. You have done good by stealth. The rest is upon record. You have still left ample room for speculation, when panegyric is exhausted.
Page 368 - Since the accession of our most gracious Sovereign to the throne, we have seen a system of government which may well be called a reign of experiments.
