Sir Thomas Robinson added, 鈥淪ire, I am not talking of what this power or that means to do, but of what will come of itself.279 To prophesy is not to threaten, sire. It is my zeal for the public good which brought me here, and鈥斺€? 北京赛车撞车图片  and a girl at that. How can I keep my mind sternly fixed on a Every engine of the English Court was put in motion to prevent the Electoral Prince from coming. Oxford had an interview with Schutz, in which he repeated that it was his applying for the writ to the Lord Chancellor instead of to the queen that had done all the mischief; that her Majesty, had it not been for this untoward incident, would have invited the Prince to come over and spend the summer in England鈥攆orgetting, as Schutz observed, that the minute before he had assured him that the queen was too much afraid of seeing any of that family here. He advised Schutz鈥攚ho could not be convinced that he had done anything irregular in his application, quoting numerous proofs to show that it was the accustomed mode of applying for writs鈥攖o avoid appearing again at Court; but Schutz, not seeming disposed to follow that advice, immediately received a positive order to the same effect from the queen through another channel. Schutz, therefore, lost no time in returning to Hanover to justify himself. At the same time, Lord Strafford was instructed to write from the Hague, blaming the conduct of Schutz in applying for the writ in the manner he did, as disrespectful to the queen; for, though strictly legal for an absent peer to make such application, the etiquette was that he should defer it till he could do it personally. Strafford ridiculed the idea of any movement being afoot in favour of the Pretender, and observed that, as to sending him out of the Duke of Lorraine's territory, it was not practicable, because the French king maintained that he had fulfilled the treaty, Lorraine not being any part of France. On the other hand, there were striking signs that the cause[17] of Hanover was in the ascendant. Men who watched the course of events decided accordingly. Marlborough, who so lately had been making court to the Pretender, now wrote from Antwerp, urging the House of Hanover to send over the prince without delay to England; that the state of the queen's health made prompt action necessary; and that the presence of the prince in London would secure the succession without risk, without expense, and without war, and was the likeliest measure of inducing France to abandon its design of assisting the Pretender. Frederick.鈥? 鈥淚 forewarn you of this, that, if we should meet again in flesh and bone, you might not feel yourself too violently shocked by my appearance. There remains nothing to me unaltered but my heart, which, as long as I breathe, will retain sentiments of esteem and tender friendship for my good mamma. Adieu.鈥?59 I must, however, exculpate the gentleman who acted as my agent, from undue persuasion exercised towards me. He was a man who thoroughly understood Parliament, having sat there himself 鈥?and he sits there now at this moment. He understood Yorkshire 鈥?or, at least, the East Riding of Yorkshire, in which Beverley is situated 鈥?certainly better than any one alive. He understood all the mysteries of canvassing, and he knew well the traditions, the condition, and the prospect of the Liberal party. I will not give his name, but they who knew Yorkshire in 1868 will not be at a loss to find it. 鈥淪o,鈥?said he, 鈥測ou are going to stand for Beverley?鈥?I replied gravely that I was thinking of doing so. 鈥淵ou don鈥檛 expect to get in?鈥?he said. Again I was grave. I would not, I said, be sanguine, but, nevertheless, I was disposed to hope for the best. 鈥淥h, no!鈥?continued he, with good-humoured raillery, 鈥測ou won鈥檛 get in. I don鈥檛 suppose you really expect it. But there is a fine career open to you. You will spend 锟?000, and lose the election. Then you will petition, and spend another 锟?000. You will throw out the elected members. There will be a commission, and the borough will be disfranchised. For a beginner such as you are, that will be a great success.鈥?And yet, in the teeth of this, from a man who knew all about it, I persisted in going to Beverley!  Dear Daddy-Long-Legs,
