Letter from Sir Stratford Canning, Grosvenor Square, [London], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he will be happy to go, providing that Palmerston cannot get a better man and trusting that he will be considerate "on the points I mentioned last night". He is gratified by Lord Grey's expressions and Palmerston's kindness. Palmerston had spoken of replacing Addington; he is an old friend of Canning's and he would not like to be party to any arrangement detrimental to him. "I am still under an impression that it would be best to begin at Madrid." n.d. ?Dec 1832
