Strana 501 - He told me war was a decided measure ; that Pitt saw it was inevitable, and that the sooner it was begun the better — that we might possess ourselves of the French Islands*; that the nation now was disposed for war, which might not be the case six weeks hence."—"January 21. News of the sentence of death being pronounced on the King of France. Called at Burlington House twice. Duke of Portland not at home.
Strana 267 - Excudent alii spirantia mollius aera, credo equidem, vivos ducent de marmore vultus, orabunt causas melius, caelique meatus describent radio et surgentia sidera dicent: 850 tu regere imperio populos, Romane, memento; hae tibi erunt artes; pacisque imponere morem, parcere subiectis et debellare superbos.
Strana 506 - His conduct has been highly honourable, and everything like personal claim, or even party claim, on him, by the Duke of Portland, is certainly at least cancelled, if not converted into a direct provocation, by what has passed since the commencement of this session. But the public good, in my opinion, requires his services ; and from that they are due from him. I shall certainly not only approve, but applaud, his acceptance of the seals.

'Ille meos, primus qui me sibi iunxit, amores 'Abstulit; ille habeat secum servetque sepulchro.
Strana 129 - P.—Look ye, Harris ; I cannot bring myself to say I am in the wrong when I am in the right. The King has used me ill; and I wish the public knew what you now know, and was to pronounce between us.
Strana 130 - ... while you are Prince of Wales ; but if you come to the throne a bachelor, and His Royal Highness the Duke of York is married and has sons to succeed you, your situation, when King, will be more painful than it is at this moment. Our own history furnishes strong examples of ihe truth of what I say.
Strana 488 - Dec. 26. The Alien Bill passed, opposed by Lord Guilford, and Lords Lansdowne and Lauderdale. These two made violent and mischievous speeches. Lord Loughborough answered them in one of the finest speeches possible. But the Duke of Portland, to the great concern and grief of his friends, did not say a word.
Strana 459 - ... it should appear they had not acceded to Pitt's ministry, but went to it on fair and even conditions, to share equally with him all the power, patronage, &c.
Strana 123 - Without entering into the almost impossibility of your Royal Highness making so rapid a transition in your ways of life, I confess I see no event would give me so much pain, as an Englishman, as to see a Prince of Wales abroad under such a description.
