This chapter discusses not only the state of King Charles II residence at Whitehall, but also the number of changes made to his roster of advisers, parliament members, and other important administration members. The king's home at Whitehall needed to be refurbished, and the king himself had expressed his desire to rebuild the whole place, but was restricted by his finances. The new government formed by the king, however, is described here in a positive light, since it symbolized the reunion of the nation and mixed social prestige with natural ability.
