PP/GC/CA/113 Letter from Sir S.Canning to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding Palmerston's dispatch about Canning's mission to Constantinople to negotiate the borders of Greece, and diplomatic appointments, 21 October 1832
Letter from Sir Stratford Canning, Brighton, [Sussex], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: although Palmerston's dispatch approving Canning's handling of the mission to secure Greece's borders does not need a reply, Canning would like to thank Palmerston for it. He also thanks Palmerston for allowing Buchanan, his former attache, to move from Rio to Washington. "He will not gain much in point of climate, but he writes me word that, of the two Americas, he prefers the north." Backhouse has told Canning that he can kiss hands previous to being gazetted as Russian ambassador on either 16 or 24 [October 1832], and so he intends to return [from Brighton] to London on 23 [October] and be presented the next day. Canning will be in London at Palmerston's disposal until the middle of November [1832]. 21 Oct 1832
