Conflict and Confusion in Early Liberalism

(p.164) 9 Conflict and Confusion in Early Liberalism
Bentham, Byron, and Greece

F. Rosen

Oxford University Press

The arrival of the first installment of the Greek loan in Zante at the end of April 1824 brought the doctrines of Edward Blaquiere and Leicester Stanhope into sharp conflict, a conflict which revealed most fully the differences between their two types of liberalism. Before Blaquiere had arrived in Greece, Stanhope had in a sense already thrown down the ideological gauntlet. In addition, though many of Stanhope's letters to John Bowring were circulated among the leading figures and read at meetings of the London Greek Committee, it is not clear how much of the correspondence was actually seen by Blaquiere who was travelling around Britain and absorbed in the completion of his own book, The Greek Revolution. The irritating conflicts between Stanhope and Byron were often personal. However, the complete opposition between Blaquiere and Stanhope was not the result of a clash of personalities, but rather an ideological one.
