Content:
Letter from Sir Stratford Canning, [British ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary on a special mission to Constantinople], Pera, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he hopes to send a messenger before the end of the week but is sending a letter now to say that there is agreement on the principal points of the protocol with the Turks [on the Greek borders]. Only a few details remain to be settled. They had a difficult time over the amount of indemnity for the Turks and they had to agree to pay more money than the residents were allowed, by several millions. Canning is, however, hopeful that Palmerston will approve of their bargain. There is talk of moving before the middle of the next month and, if this were any other country, this would happen. 26 Jun 1832 The letter is marked: "Private" and the docket notes that it arrived in London 24 July 1832
