Definition of junto:
He pointed out to emulation the Whig junto who held so close together in the reign of Anne- Sunderland, Godolphin, Somers, and Marlborough- who believed " that no men could act with effect who did not act in concert; that no men could act in concert who did not act with confidence; and that no men could act with confidence who were not bound together by common opinions, common affections, and common interests."- "Burke", John Morley.
This clause does not, therefore, savour in the least of any thing more arbitrary than what has already been experienced: so that the horrours the anti- federal junto pretend to anticipate on that head, must sink into nothing.- "Essays on the Constitution of the United States", Paul Leicester Ford.
This letter was shewn by Mr. Miller to some of the leaders of the junto, and Mr. Miller informed me that it had the effect of making them at once come to the resolution of returning Lord Cochrane again, or at least of not making any opposition to him, by bringing forward any other person.- "Memoirs of Henry Hunt, Esq. Volume 3", Henry Hunt.
