In 1804, a person whose fate it is to remain anonymous to posterity, saw Mr. Pitt once at Windsor Castle. Here is his/her recollection of Pitt:
"It was something to me, even this once, to have seen Mr. Pitt. The
face and figure and deportment of the man gave a precision to my
subsequent conception of him as one of the realities of history. The
immobility of those features, the erectness of that form, told of one
born to command. The loftiness and breadth of the forehead spoke of
sagacity and firmness, the quick eye of eloquent promptitude, the nose
(I cannot pass over that remarkable feature though painters and
sculptors failed to reproduce it), the nose somewhat twisted out of the
perpendicular, made his enemies say his face was as crooked as his
policy. I saw those characteristics or had them pointed out to me
afterwards. But that smile, revealing the charm of his inner nature, that was to win the love of his intimates, but it was not for vulgar observation.”
Oh, to have been there.
