P. Thompson papers, DTH/4/14. This correspondence was later published as Audi Alterant Partem. Letters of a Representative to His Constituents, 3 vols. (London, 1858-61). The old radicalism and the new 41 hart's organisational strategy, the foreign affairs committees formed during 1857 agreed with the broad thrust of Urquhart's analysis of events. They accepted that Palmerston had subverted the functions of the Privy Council and that his diplomatic representatives in the Indian subcontinent knew no lawful restraints on their exercise of power.

In stressing the single-minded and didactic character of the Urquhart movement, historians have thus laid emphasis precisely where Urquhart would have wished, but not necessarily where it is due. The purpose of this chapter is to relocate Urquhart and the foreign affairs committees within the mainstream of the political culture from which they emerged. II There are good empirical grounds for treating Urquhart's account of the foreign affairs committees with some scepticism. In the first place, it is by no means clear that it was the Crimean war which provided the impetus for the formation of the majority of the committees.
