Peace while so many were making themselves ready for battle
Tuesday 19 July 1763: Finding it was not expedient to leave London during the ferment which still continued by reason of Mr. Maxfield’s separation from us, I determined not to remove from it before the Conference. This began on Tuesday, July 19, and ended on Saturday 23. And it was a great blessing that we had peace among ourselves, while so many were making themselves ready for battle.
