Among them was destined to be Goodricke, whose career was on more than one occasion to bring him into close touch with this political profligate. Pechlin had made up his mind that the Hats must be relieved of some of the odium which now attached to them, by the removal of the more vulnerable of their leaders. He collected around him a body of Adullamites which for a short time went under the name of the Country Party (lantpartiet): a casual coalition of old Caps, supporters of the Court, friends of the constitution, disillusioned Hats, ambitious frondeurs, whose only common ground was hostility to the Hat Senate.

But perhaps it was because there was the possibility of yet another rebuff that he chose as Campbell's successor an obscure member of the diplomatic service who had never hitherto filled any established 12 The Road to Stockholm post. If the Swedes should once again prove uncivil, their incivility would not blight the career of anyone that mattered. The expendable pawn thus boldly pushed forward was Sir John Goodricke. 36 Of his early life we know almost nothing; but we do know that in September 1731 he married Mary Johnson, the illegitimate daughter of a Yorkshire peer, Lord Bingley.

Nevertheless, he added what was clearly intended as a hint: "a natural opportunity" for such an amende, he observed, was afforded by the accession of George Ill. Goodricke was at liberty to insinuate that the sending of a compliment to the new king would be well taken, and the envoy who brought it be assured of a gracious reception.
