Chatham William Pitt First Earl Of 1708-1778 The Great
Commoner," who brought England "to a height of prosperity and glory
unknown to any former age." He urged continually a conciliatory policy

to the capture of Louisbourg, and Wolfe and Saunders to victory at
Quebec. =Index=: (Lord Dorchester era) Opposes Quebec Act, 65. =Bib.=: Almon, Anecdotes
