“House of Lords, 9th Oct., 10 o’clock.

“. . . The town is literally drunk with joy at this unparalleled triumph of the Queen. There is no doubt now in any man’s mind, except Lauderdale’s, that the whole thing has been a conspiracy for money. The Ministers were down at Windsor yesterday, taking with them the ould customer Lonsdale, and a new one in the Duke of Rutland. . . .”

“4 o’clock.
