Object Description: Unhappy with the current ministry, Lord Frederick North (left) and Charles James Fox (center), formed a notoriously short coalition that lasted less than nine months.

After a bill to nationalize the British East India Company failed, King George III dismissed North and Fox and appointed twenty-four year old William Pitt as Prime Minister.
