A Passion for Government

Because the officials at port asserted that she travel only through the most primitive and smallest of packet boats, Sarah's transfer from Dover to Ostend was quick but uncomfortable. As she arrived, however, she received ceremonious treatment because not only did the people want to show their affection towards Sarah's husband, such a gesture demonstrated how the people abroad may have perceived both the Parliament and the Ministry. As Marlborough waited to take Sarah to Aix-la-Chapelle, Sarah found Aix to be disagreeable because of all the inconveniences associated with the area. As Sarah realized that they had failed in attaining the primary goal of their travels to Frankfurt, Sarah felt that they were, in a way, banished from the country.
