VISCOUNT GORING, his Son SIR ROBERT CHILTERN, Bart., Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs
VICOMTE DE NANJAC, Attache at the French Embassy in London MR.
A state like this would ever be exposed to the invasions of those who were powerful and inclined to attack it; but, as has been already mentioned, its situation preserves it, as it is free from the inroads of foreigners; and for this reason the family slaves still remain quiet at Crete, while the Helots are perpetually revolting: for the Cretans take no part in foreign affairs
, and it is but lately that any foreign troops have made an attack upon the island; and their ravages soon proved the ineffectualness of their laws.
The Duke paused, in his way across the crowded reception rooms, to speak to his host, Sir Edward Bransome, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
His brother had been the person nearest to his heart, but he had a post in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
, and was always abroad, where he had died shortly after Alexey Alexandrovitch's marriage.
You there see foreign affairs
discussed in a manner little inferior to that with which they are handled in the coffee-houses; and domestic occurrences are much more largely and freely treated in the former than in the latter.
"He is one of the most remarkable, but to me most unpleasant of men- the Minister of Foreign Affairs
, Prince Adam Czartoryski....
The truth was, that the prince, forgetting the undoubted right of the minister for foreign affairs
to fall in love on his behalf, had, contrary to every precedent of policy and diplomacy, already fallen in love on his own account, and privately contracted himself unto the fair daughter of a noble Athenian.
His late Excellency, whom the august favour of his Imperial master had imposed as Ambassador upon several reluctant Ministers of Foreign Affairs
, had enjoyed in his lifetime a fame for an owlish, pessimistic gullibility.
No sooner was a foreigner seen there than the Minister of Foreign Affairs
, or some other great or small officer of state, went round to the Erbprinz and found out the name of the new arrival.
To the ministry of foreign affairs
belonged the administration of justice, the household of the king, and all that concerned arts, sciences, and belles lettres.
That of John Jay was associated with them shortly after the peace, in the capacity of Secretary to the Congress for Foreign Affairs
. The incompetency of the Articles of Confederation for the management of the affairs of the Union at home and abroad was demonstrated to them by the painful and mortifying experience of every day.
The Duke, his father, was at one time Secretary for Foreign Affairs
. They inherit Plantagenet blood by direct descent, and Tudor on the distaff side.
