When Halifax urged the payment of the salaries of the crown officers in the colonies, directly from England, in accordance with the system which he had been maturing since 1748, Grenville would not consent to it; and though Halifax, at a formal interview with him, at which Hillsborough and Jenkinson were present, became extremely heated and eager, Grenville's Diary for Friday, 6 January, 1764, in Grenville Papers, i. 48.
