Excerpt from Calendar of the Manuscripts of the Marquis of Bath Preserved at Longleat, Wiltshire, Vol. 1 On the other hand the papers of Queen Anne's reign are of capital importance in regard of the inner political history of the time. They enable us to trace the course of Harley's estrange ment from the Whigs from its very beginning to the final rupture. For rather more than a year after his appointment to the Secretary's Office all goes smoothly enough, but from the tone of his draft letter to Godolphin of 21 July, 1705, it is evident that he had already incurred the Treasurer's suspicion, and was hard put to it to find language equal to allaying it. The numerous alterations in the draft Show the extreme care with which it was studied. But the artist forgot celare artem, the humility is abject, the adulation laid on With a trowel; and such expressions as I cannot allow a thought disagreeable to you, have no other views, no other passions, than to be subservient to your Lordship, know my own heart, and I can die a martyr for what I have written, must have been apt rather to excite than to allay suspicion in a statesman of Godolphin's shrewdness and experience.
