2648. ENGLAND, Hostility of.—[further continued] .

There is no party in our
favor here [London] either in power or out
of power. Even the opposition concur with
the ministry and the nation in this. I can
scarcely consider as a party the Marquis of
Landsdowne, and a half dozen characters
about him, such as Dr. Price, &c., who are
impressed with the utility of a friendly connection
with us. The former does not venture
this sentiment in parliament, and the latter
are not in situations to be heard. * * * Were the Marquis to come into the ministry
(of which there is not the most distant prospect ),
he must adopt the King's system, or
go out again, as he did before, for daring to
depart from it.—
