agues entirely to himself. Pitt, as twice before, immediately proposed that his brother-in-law, Lord Temple, should be placed at the head of the Treasury. Temple was summoned from Stowe, but 杭州不正规足浴店地址 was as haughty and unmanageable as ever. He demanded that all the old Ministers should be dismissed, that Lord 杭州千花阁论坛 Lyttelton should have the Privy Seal, Lord Gower be Secretary of State, etc. Pitt could not accede to these terms. This time he did not throw up the offer of the Premiership to oblige his wrong-headed brother-in-law, who had the overweening 杭州按摩服务 idea that he was as great a man as Pitt himself. He stood firm, and, after a long interview at North End, Hampstead, where Pitt had taken a house for the time, Temple set off to Stowe again in high dudgeon, declaring that Pitt had thrown 0571杭州夜网 off the mask, and never meant to accept his co-operation at all. Lord Camden advised Pitt to stand fast, throw off the Grenvilles, and save the nation without them. He acted on the advice.
He found the Bedford clan ready, as usual, for office, but wanting to come in a whole legion; the poor weak Duke of Newcastle was equally prepared, shedding tears in 杭州水磨群 his facile way, hugging and kissing people in his trouble, and wondering why his “dear old friend” had thus abandoned him. Pitt passed on, and chose Lord Camden as Lord Chancellor; Northington as President of the Council; Lord Granby as 杭州不正规按摩 Commander-in-Chief; Shelburne and Conway as Secretaries of State; the Duke of Grafton as First Lord of the Treasury; Charles Townshend as Chancellor of the Exchequer; with Lord North, James Grenville, brother of Temple, Colonel Barré, and others, 杭州足浴油压 in secondary posts. Mr. Stewart Mackenzie, Bute’s brother, was restored to his former
office, but without any control over Scottish affairs. It was clear that Pitt had selected his colleagues without regard to party, but with an eye to the ability of the respective persons. It was a mode of acting particularly after the fancy of the king, who had always 杭州桑拿生活网 been, according to his own words to Pitt on the occasion, “zealously ready to give his aid towards destroying all party distinctions, and restoring that subordination to government, which can alone preserve that inestimable blessing, 杭州家庭spa联系方式 liberty, from degenerating into licentiousness.” “I venture,” said Burke, “to say, it did so happen that persons had a single office divided between them, who had never spoken to each other in their lives, until they found themselves, they knew not how, 杭州足疗机 pigging together, heads and points, in the same
But where, all this time, was the Great Commoner? The whole world was astonished when the fact came out that Pitt would accept no post in his own Ministry but that of Privy Seal, which necessitated his removal to the House of Peers. The king himself offered no opposition. Pitt’s 杭州保健养生按摩 colleagues were not only astonished, but confounded; for they calculated on having his abilities and influence in the House of Commons. “It is a fall up stairs,” said the witty Chesterfield, “which will do Pitt so much hurt that he will never be 杭州哪些洗浴有活 able to stand upon his legs again.” No doubt it was a great
