Calendar of the Manuscripts of the Marquis of Bath Preserved at Longleat, Wiltshire, 1908, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from Calendar of the Manuscripts of the Marquis of Bath Preserved at Longleat, Wiltshire, 1908, Vol. 3 Hitherto the world has known little of Matthew Prior save as a man of letters- for as to the serious business of his life it was vain to seek for enlightenment in the misty account of his negotiations compiled by his executor Adrian Drift (2nd ed.1740). This lack the present volume in some measure supplies- for, though it contains no state paper relating to the Treaty of litrecht, it illustrates every phase of the earlier period in which, as successively Secretary to the Embassy and Minister ad interim pt The Hague. lttiW 7, Secretary to the Embassy at the Congress of Ryswiok, 1697, and, finally, Secretary to the Embassy and Minister ad interim at Paris, 1698-99, Prior served his apprenticeship in the mystery of diplomacy. It contains, moreover, a Journal of the Proceedings at Ryswick, 1697, drawn up under his personal supervision, which, with the subjoined Memoirs and the relevant correspondence, furnishes material for a clear and consecutive narrative of the entire negotiation from the first overtures of the French to the ratification of the treaty. How far, then, it may be asked, do these papers elucidate the inner history of the treaty, and in particular how far do they serve to explain the immense concessions made by the French? In 1695 France had lost in Marshal Luxembourg her ablest general, and had good reason to be dismayed by the fall of Namur, but her position was still by no means desperate. It would have required more sieges, no little time, and much hard fighting to compel her to evacuate the Netherlands. Her financial straits were extreme, but those of the Allies were probably not less so, and the separate peace with Savoy(1696) enabled her to effect a considerable economy, and concentrate her forces where they could operate with most effect, on the Rhine and the Spanish seaboard. Her overtures for peace on the basis of the treaties of Westphalia and Nymegen therefore took the world by surprise, the more so as notwithstanding Callieres beau mot, that we must make a peace on all sides, for we cannot make a war, lack of funds did not prevent the raising of recruits (p. 90, infra). Prior, however, was at first sanguine as to the result of the negotiation. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
