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
towards America, until it became apparent that the colonists would be
satisfied with nothing less than independence. His broad outlook and
unerring instinct in the choice of men were chiefly responsible for the
triumphs of British policy at home and abroad. Sent Boscawen and Amherst
to the capture of Louisbourg, and Wolfe and Saunders to victory at
Quebec. =Index=: (Lord Dorchester era) Opposes Quebec Act, 65. =Bib.=: Almon, Anecdotes
