Excerpt from War With Russia: Speech of the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone (M. P. For the University of Oxford, ) on the Negotiations and the War; In the House of Commons, on Thursday, May 24, 1855
University of Oxford (sir W. Iieatlicote) has proposed to amend this Amendment by the insertion of words which would give it a tendency decidedly pacific, with out weakening the pledge to support the Crown in the actual prosecution of the war, and has supported his proposal by what appeared to me an admirably reason ed speech. Lastly, we have my hon. Friend the Member for Kidderminster (mr. Lowe) who, feeling apparently much as I do with respect to the language of the Member for Portsmouth, completes the party by pro posing to alter his Amendment in such a manner as to give it a decidedly warlike instead of a decidedly pacific aspect.
