Excerpt from Personal and Party Government: A Chapter in the Political History of the Early Years of the Reign, of George III, 1760-1766

In the following pages an attempt is made to narrate the struggle between the crown and the whig party from the accession of George III to the downfall of the first Rockingham administration. The tale is tangled and involved, and it has been necessary, in order to preserve the continuity of the story, to omit much of vital interest in the history of the time. Thus the highly important negotiations with France, and the Peace of Paris, are only considered in their bearing upon domestic politics; and although this limited treatment might well deserve censure in a work professing to be a general account of the period, it may possibly be excused in what claims to be no more than a study of only one aspect of the early years of the reign of George III.

It would be a mistake, however, to deny or belittle the importance of the contest between the king and the whig leaders. It was no mere selfish lust for power that impelled George III to wage war upon the men who had enslaved his grandfather, but a conscientious conviction that it was his duty, as a constitutional monarch, to rule as well as to reign. Nor were his opponents influenced by sordid and ignoble motives.
