“. . . Now for Lord Durham and our Brougham and Vaux. You saw the origin of this storm—the scratch Durham gave Vaux at Edinburgh, and the kick Vaux gave Durham in return from Salisbury. They are now got to closer quarters. Vaux has taken the field against him in an article in the Edinburgh Review, which you ought to read. Durham is attacked by name, whilst his assailant is anonymous, tho’ known to all the world. Durham replies publickly in his own name that, if the writer of this article is a member of the Government, he is a liar, or words to that effect. Now my own deliberate opinion is that Vaux is at last caught, and will be ruined; and very likely the Government will fall with him. His going to Scotland at all with the purpose he did—to rob Lord Grey of his fame—was an act of insanity, and the disease has increased since. . . .”
