Henry Seymour Conway and the Chatham Administration

Today, January 27, 2017, I have added Chapter V of my doctoral dissertation, Henry Seymour Conway and the Commons's Cause, 1741-1784, to the page section of this site. The dissertation was originally completed in 1972, fifty five years ago. I must admit that I have not kept up with General Conway in the intervening years, but reading these pages has brought Conway and his times back to life for me.

Chapter V deals with Conway's role in the short-lived and ill-fated Chatham Administration. He played a major role but history has not been kind to him. I tried to correct that judgment in this chapter.
