The ministers of a free and high-minded country cannot be without a due feeling of the value of public character. They know, that in public station, still more than in private life, a good name is connected with the due and effective performance of duties ; that character is influence, and that influence is power; that power from influence will extend its operation, where power from law and positive authority cannot reach ; and that the goodwill of the people towards government, has in all ages proved the readiest means of an effective administration. Under these considerations, his Majesty's ministers for themselves, and their friends for them, must naturally desire to stand well in public opinion.
