Cannot but think that Lady Hamilton's son (nephew of the writer), has right on his side in the matter of changing his religion, insofar (only) as he obeys the dictates of conscience, even against the consent of parents.

The advice the Duke has given of strict self-examination is precisely what he would give, under like circumstances, to a son of his own.

Lord Montgomery's presence gives life to those who are in the North [of Ireland] already. The very expectation of it put sober thoughts into many heads.
