3440. GEORGE III., Control of.—

[George III.] minister is able, and that satisfies
me that ignorance or wickedness, somewhere,
controls him [the King]. [215]
To John Randolph. Washington ed. i, 203. Ford ed., i, 493.
(Pa., 1775)


Parton in his Life of Jefferson, p. 180, says: “This
remark is interesting, as showing that Jefferson, at a
time when the fact was not generally known, felt
that a man of the calibre of Lord North was out of
place in the cabinet of George III., and did not in his
heart approve the King's policy.”—Editor.
