congratulated Mr. King on the acquisition,
and declared that the King had learned it
with great pleasure; and when Baring, the
British banker, asked leave of the minister to

so far from throwing obstacles in the way,
if there were any difficulty in the payment of
the money, it was the interest of Great Britain
to aid it.—
