The outbreak of War with France effectively prevented further debate for many years because any opposition was considered to be sedition.
The strain on Wilberforce was immense (and he had been plagued by ill health) but he refused to reveal his inner torment to anyone, only a few close to him knew he was distressed or in doubt about the future
People around him try to persuade him to continue, including, in this monologue, John Newton


When I heard William Wlberforce was contemplating retirement from public life , I sent him a letter. I stated that it was impossible to measure the good he was doing in parliament. The example, even the presence of a consistent character has a powerful effect on others. I told him, it is true you live in the midst of difficulties and snares - and you need a double guard of watchfulness and prayer
‘I told him - you are not only a representative for Yorkshire you have the far greater honour of being a representative for the Lord – I encouraged Wilberforce to stay in Parliament and "serve God where he was".
