5.—When Lord Eldon received the Great Seal from George IV., and kissed hands on his appointment, the king conversed with him, and said, when his lordship was about to retire," Give my remembrance to Lady Bldon."
Lord Eldon acknowledged this condcscenslon, and intimated that he was Ignorant of Lady Eldon's claim to such a notice.
" Yes, yes," answered the king," I know how much I owe to Lady Bldon. I know that you would have made yourself a country curate, and that she has made you my Lord Chancellor."
It is remarkable that George IV., who, as he confessed, began by hating Lord Bldon, ended by be-coming as much attached to him as George III,
. "On Monday," says Lord Bldon, in a letter to h is grandson describing his anal resignation, in 1837, "your grandfather attended with the rest of the Ministers to give up the seals of ofhee, and was, of course, called in Orst. The king was so much affected thatvery little passed; but he threw his arms round your grandfather's neck and shed tears.""
9.—Tears ago, when a low stand-ard of morals prevailed, the epithet "Great" was bestowed upon any monarch who won battles and en-larged the territory and resources of his kingdom. It mattered little to the historian what might be a king's private character, provided he made his nation formidable by his brute strength and full treasury. Even if he was a bad man they eulogised him as a good ruler.
Peter I. of Russia Is called "Peter the Great" because he transformed a barbarous Into a semi-barbarous nation. But no one can now read the following summary of his character without a feeling of disgust.
Voltaire, In his "Philosophical Dictionary," says that "Peter was half hero and half tiger." Macanlnv declares that" to the end of his life he lived in his palace like a hog In a sty, and when he was entertained by other sovereigns, never failed to leave unequivocal proof that a savage had been there."
Peter, when the Gt was on him, literally caned everybody—from his cook to his counsellor, from the meanest peasant to the highest noble—sparing neither age nor sex. He would get up from the table and Bog the host who was entertaining him. He would stand at the door of the Senate-house and Oog each Senator tliat went in.
Lefort was an intimate and trusted friend, yet on slight provocation he was knocked down and brutally kicked by his Imperial master.
But all this flogging was In the way of recreation. When Peter "meant business" It was a more serious matter.
