He represented Coventry in Parliament from 1818 (except from 1826 to 1830) until his death; was, in 1830, joint Secretary of the Treasury, and the Whip of the Whigs in the House of Commons; and Secretary of War for a short time in Lord Melbourne's ministry. His first wife was the sister of Earl Grey, and his second the widow of the Earl of Leicester. He was much interested in French affairs, and was the partisan of Thiers. Greville Memoirs, Chap. XXXII., Jan. 19, 1837. Sumner met him on his visit to England in 1857. &c., got into the mail which drives through Lord Leicester's park, rode inside all night, and this morning arrived in London.

Perhaps you may think this a cavil, rather than an argument; for the true answer is that no wars are purely defensive.
