Footnotes

  • By the beginning of 1805, Fox had entered into a political alliance with Lord Grenville, whose aims were opposing Pitt’s conduct of the war with France. Their aim was ultimately to make peace with France and secure toleration for Roman Catholics in England and Ireland. This coalesced Opposition in Fox’s words would pave the way for the Ministry of All the Talents, which governed in the following year after the death of Pitt in January 1806.
