Pitt must fling himself into us; and therefore he must be reasonable; and so must we, too; he has no other part to take. This the Duke of Grafton and Conway should urge strongly with him; He is now in their hands… 
After Lord Temple’s retreat I thought all our difficulties at an end; and still hope it may be so. It depends on ourselves. Your Grace’s temper and generous sentiments…will much help to conciliate a thing which we have long thought right and now seems necessary. 
However calm my conduct may be in the present times, I beg and desire it may be understood and known to proceed in great measure from the regard I bear to you and the Duke of Grafton. 
I flatter myself with thinking the measures, and I hope in general the men too, will be in the light of a Publick System the same, as when I took and inconsiderable part under the auspices of your Grace and some other friends.
I cannot with honour continue long in the situation I am in, unless I can preserve that reputation of fairness and consistency which I think I must forfeit by a seeming concurrence in such repeated injuries to those with whom I have lately acted, and to whom I conveyed an engagement…that far from being the objects of particular neglect or resentment, they would rather, in preference, meet the favour and protection of government. 
he felt himself in all these matters ill-treated, wished himself out, but doubted whether he would be justified in throwing the King’s affairs into confusion, which his resignation might occasion. 
Conway is our great point. Your Lordship says very rightly, his conduct may depend on ours; and therefore, if he will be our steddy friend, he should in great measure direct us; and our conduct should be agreeable to him.
He had not had one happy moment since his embarking…and that if he only consulted his own ease of mind and body he should not stay one moment longer in employment; but that in the present distracted state of affairs he thought it his duty to struggle against his inclinations and endeavor to ride out the storm.
hoped things were not gone so far as to be beyond an accommodation, and begged the execution of our determination be suspended.
I believe both wish it though the different manners of the men may in some measure have thrown obstacles in the way. 
He would neither receive nor pay any deference to the Minister’s orders, acting for or against, as he approved or disliked his measures. 
sees with calmness and good wishes the difficulties that may attend administration and will…go as far as his own delicate feelings will allow him to act…He does not mean to quit administration immediately, tho’ he seems upon the whole to think he cannot act long in the post he now holds, 
If it was expected, that he should take an active part, in support of measures, he must be enabled to do it…he would support the measures which he himself had advised; but would not, like a lawyer, talk from a brief. 
Had the House with him, had not Conway done better, than ever he did in his life, and cut him down fairly, treating him with contempt and ridicule. 
my great reliance on its success in the House of Commons is on your Abilitys and Character, and I am certain I can rely on your Zeal at all times to carry on my Affairs. 
He disclaimed slavery; was only a passenger in Administration, but always remonstrated against whatever was contrary to his opinion. 
By pursuing this method of negotiation all the difficulties which attend a Parliamentary decision of this question may be avoided, as well as the inconvenience that must follow from a breach with the Company, or even a delay on making some proper settlement of their affairs. 
For the subsequent days on the East India business, and I am not without hope that if pains are taken…Conway may be persuaded to take a more active part on this occasion than there was any reason to imagine. 
The Colonies were not mere corporations; their charters gave them legislative power. On taxes they would always be tender. 
I agree perfectly with your Lordship in the idea of restraining the power [Court influence] you mention, but in the mode of doing it I am not sure we agree. I would do what was necessary for that purpose and no more; and I would take care the world should see that alone was intended and that other views and purposes were not substituted to it; for I think too much may be done, as well as too little, towards that right purpose, and may even succeed the less to that very end.
I shall trouble your Lordship no further; I have done it too much with my vain and insignificant thoughts already. You have others that advise you better, and much more forcibly. 
That General Conway has given him authority to say, that, though the particular situation is not fixed on, he is determined to stand forward in the House of Commons to carry on the King’s business. 
with a few only of the chief of your friends…the rest should wait those vacancies which Death, and occasional arrangements might make in the course of time.
