British Prime Minister's view on ending the war

November18, 1814

British Prime Minister letter to Lord Castlereagh on ending the war:

“I think we have determined, if all other points can be satisfactorily settled, not to continue the war for the purpose of obtaining, or securing any acquisition of territory. We have been led to this determination by the consideration of the unsatisfactory state of the negotiations at Vienna, and by that of the alarming situation of the interior of France.”
