office, in 1841, Aberdeen received again the portfolio of foreign-affairs, and appeared to have learned that history tendencies were to be repressed rather than indulged. He supported Peel in repealing the corn laws, and retired with him on the ministerial changes which succeeded the enactment of that policy. He has since occasionally spoken against the government, particularly in the affairs of Greece. During the Cabinet crisis of 1851 he was sent for by the Queen, with a view to undertake the government with Sir John Graham, but declined that responsibility. He had previously refused to co-operate with Lord Stanley. In February, 1852, on the accession to power of the protectionist party, the Earl of Aberdeen took office as Minister of Foreign Affairs, under the Premiership of the Earl of Derby. The mismanagement of the Crimean War however, drove that Ministry out of power, and since then, up to the time of his death, the Earl of Aberdeen has lived in comparative retirement.
