Wednesday’s Piece

“I do not understand,” said Lord Salisbury as they walked together one day, “what your real political position is.”

“Oh, I am a ‘Smithite’, Lord Salisbury,” replied Sir Henry reverentially – “a convinced ‘Smithite’ in politics.”

“But what is your object?”

“To do good, simply to do good,” was the reply.

(From the Life of Lord Randolph Churchill by Winston Churchill)
