Evidence:
John Wilson Croker to Lord Stanley, 4 [?14] June 1847: 'I have had communicated to me the pages of a pamphlet, which is in the press, and about to be published in defence of the policy, and still more of the fairness of and consistency of Sir R. Peel's conduct [...] 'When you come to see the pamphlet you will find on p.45, &c, your personal accordance with Sir Robert's free trade measures, and particularly your Canada Corn Bill produced in his behalf. 'The pamphlet is well-written, and in rather a conciliatory tone, and certainly looks like like a move towards re-uniting the party under Sir R. Peel; but there is no argument for, and indeed hardly any palliation of, the particular steps of his proceeding in 1845-6. It [italics]assumes[end italics] that the Irish famine has proved, and that the state of England by and by will further prove, that all he did was [italics]right[end italics], as the writer thinks that he has shown that it was all [italics]fair[end italics].'
