“11th March, 1803.

“. . . No one knows the precise point on which the damn’d Corsican and the Doctor* have knocked their heads together, but I must think, till I know more, that Addington has been precipitate. The injury done is incalculable. I defy any man to have confidence in public credit in future, till a perfectly new order of things takes place. . . . As long as the neighbouring Monster lives, he will bully and defy us; and being once discovered, as it now is, that even Addington will bluster as well as him in return, I see no prospect of prosperity in this country, that is—the prosperity of peace—as long as Buonaparte lives. . . . Was it not lucky that I sold out at 74¼? They are to-day about 64.
