Book Description

Published in 1966: The object of this book is to give a picture of Pitt, true to life and ‘captivating the people,’ whom he served and loved. He has sometimes suffered in history because the people who appreciated him at his highest were inarticulate and have left the field to the surmises of courtiers, Whig magnates and gossips, whom he sought not to please.
