Excerpt from Public Opinion and Lord Beaconsfield, Vol. 2 of 2: 1875 1880 At the beginning of September, Public Opinion was vehemently pressing the Cabinet to adopt the policy of Emancipation, and raging against their unwillingness to move in that direction. Three months later we shall see Public Opinion regarding, with something like general approval, the mission of Lord Salisbury to sit beside Sir Henry Elliot in the Conference of Constantiple. From these facts it follows that during the interval a reconciliation was somehow effected between the Cabinet and Public Opinion, i Such a reconciliation might be the result of a belief in the conversion of the Cabinet to the violet policy, - and this, whether the conversion were real or only apparent; or, on the other hand, it might be the result of a change in Public Opinion itself as to the merits of the violet policy.
