confer 
with 
Pitt, 
who was then again in power, on the subject, 
and the proposal was received by him with 
much apparent sincerity. But a disastrous 
series of public events about the same time

versation in the gallery of the Louvre, said, " It 
is my earnest intention, as soon as I am firmly 
seated on the saddle, to redeem the promise that 
I then made." But he also was frustrated in 
his 
intentions,
