“Under our present circumstances no news is good news, because it shows there are great difficulties in making the peace between the King and Pitt. . . . The King has communicated to him that he will see him to-morrow or Saturday, which communication Pitt immediately forwarded to Fox. There is, I hope, much value in these facts: they show, I hope, that the Monarch is done, and can no longer make Ministers; they show too, I hope, that Pitt thinks so. Why this delay at such a time if the King is well? Why this civility from Pitt to Fox? if the former did not suspect no good was to come of his interviews with his Master. We are all in better spirits—by ‘all,’ I mean the admirers of Fox and haters of Pitt. . . .”
