Pagina 69 - Burr1et, that arch- Whig, wrote soon afterwards in his History of my own Time, 'I never knew any thing, in the management of the Tories, by which they suffered more in their reputation than by this.'34 When the bishop wrote these words he was not to know that a more terrible shoal lay ahead for the Tories, one which was to do far more than simply damage their reputation; and that he would live to see them run on to it.

The bill passed in the house of lords, but the tories protested against it, I never knew any thing, in the management of the tories, by which they suffered more in their reputation, than by this : they hoped, that the motion for the invitation would have cleared them of all...

Pagina 68 - Spain when the late king died, probably that would have prevented all this war in which we were now engaged.

They thought this matter was to be left wholly to the queen ; that it was neither proper nor safe, either for the crown or for the nation, that the heir should not be in an entire dependance on the queen ; a rivalry between two courts might throw us...
Pagina 68 - England had declared ; there were threatening dangers that hung over us, and might be near us. He concluded that he did not see how they could be prevented, and the nation made safe, by any other way but by inviting the next successor to come and live among us.
Pagina 83 - The nature of this proposal is such, that it executes itself: the interest of Spain is to support it : and in France, the persons to whom that succession is to belong, will be ready and powerful enough to vindicate their own right. " France and Spain are now more effectually divided than ever. And thus, by the blessing of God, will a real balance of power be fixed in Europe, and remain liable to as few accidents as human affairs can be exempted...
