Scarce. The debate on Coke's motion to form a new government, which led to the short-lived Fox-North coalition of 1783 (though collapsed after a year). Speakers included Fox, North, Pitt, Coxe, and others. Coxe's original motion was a plea to the King "to take into his royal Consideration, the distressed Situation of the Country from the Calamities of a long and ruinous War [i.e., the American Revolution] and that he would choose such an Administration as may deserve the Confidence of the People, and relieve them from the distracted State of their Country"
