“Howick, 18th Sept.

“. . . I have a little changed my mind about this same Achitophel.* I begin to believe that he really did not at that time mean to turn Lord G. out. I believe so, because it was not essential to his interest to do so, not that I suspect him of any scruples. I am inclined to think his own version of it is true. He expected to bully Lord G. and to shorten the session. He afterwards got into a mess, and it cost him nothing to tell a thousand lies. . . . But enough of our triumphs and our feuds. Thank God! as you say, Lord G.’s political life has ended gloriously. . . . We are now settled here for ever.”
