This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1827 edition. Excerpt: ...the utter insufficiency of a passive defence, whether by sea or land, for the protection of these countries, or for sustaining their credit.--As I have now some moments of ease, though more reduced in my flesh than ever, and that I fall away every day, I have a mind to anticipate in part, the work I was preparing, and in a letter to you or to some other friend, if you should think it not adviseable to address it to you, I might give rather results, and conclusions, than formal detailed discussions against the plans of armament which can end in nothing but our ruin. All these false and ill-understood precautions against danger serve only to augment the publick alarm, to waste the resources of the country, and to destroy the vital principles of publick credit. How comes it, that we have no established course of intelligence, which I am sure, easily might have been had, in Holland; but I strongly suspect that amongst all our expenditures very little is laid out in this way.--To say a word of myself, though falling away to a shadow, I find my little strength rather increased, than impaired, and my nights, thank God, are unusually good--not having had a bad one for these last four past, and the two last quite as good as in my best health. I am taken once in about seven or eight days with a vomiting, which gives me great temporary relief, but contributes at the same time to emaciate me more than any thing else, even more than the purging, which is the only means by which I can be kept open--For I don't know what the medium is, in this respect. God bless you. Remem her me affectionately to Lord Fitzwilliam, and with all gratitude. Mrs. Burke is better of the rash which had broken out upon her, and she does not seem, thank God, to be in other respects...
