Under George I Hanover joined the alliance against Charles XII of Sweden, and Hanover troops were used as an arm of British foreign policy. His son and successor, King George II, also was pretty much utterly a Hanoverian. Curiously, he was on bad terms with his brother-in-law Frederick William I of Prussia, and his nephew Frederick the Great; and in 1729 war between Prussia and (British) Hanover was only just avoided. Around the time of these pamphlets (1743) George took up arms on behalf of the Empress Maria Theresa. In 1745 the danger in England from the Jacobites led George to sign the Convention of Hanover with Frederick the Great (although the struggle with France raged around his electorate until the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748). In England in 1742 Walpole fell, largely by Chesterfield's efforts... but Chesterfield remained in the opposition, distinguishing himself by the courtly bitterness of his attacks on George II. George learned to hate him violently. With Waller, Chesterfield waged an energetic pamphlet war on George and his ministers. By 1744 the coalition or 'Broad Bottom' party, led by Chesterfield and Pitt, came into office.

Extractions: Biography CHESTERFIELD, PHILIP DORMER STANHOPE, 4TH EARL OF (1694-1773). âStatesman and letter-writer, was the eldest s. of the 3rd Earl. After being at Trinity Coll., Camb., he sat in the House of Commons until his accession to the peerage in 1726. He filled many high offices, including those of Ambassador to Holland, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and Sec. of State. He was distinguished for his wit, conversational powers, and grace of manner. His place in literature is fixed by his well-known Letters addressed to his natural son, Philip Dormer Stanhope. Though brilliant, and full of shrewdness and knowledge of the world, they reflect the low tone of morals prevalent in the age when they were written. He was the recipient of Johnson's famous letter as to his "patronage."
