Product Description

A Satire on the differences between Henry Pelham-Holles, Duke of Newcastle (C—-M—-T), and William Pitt (H—Y—S). Newcastle had been First Lord of the Treasury and a keen supporter of Bute. On the ascendancy of Pitt, Newcastle retained his position at The Treasury, but still maintained his peace policy. He was however reduced to a position of impotancy. The transcript of a number of letter is included with the names partly obscured. There are many references to the Negotiations for Peace in the War with France which includes the French/Indian war in North America which was under negotiation at the time. Not found in Sabin.
