In part, "Your Lordship will pardon me if I say that I fear you do not fully consider how like your countrymen are to the inhabitants of this country, actuated by the same passions, possessed of the same sense of their consequence and pursuing the same views, and of course to be governed only by the same means, which you alone apply here. . . . It will cost the King [George III] infinitely more to adjust this matter and to conciliate the Temper of that Parliament."
