PP/GC/CA/142 Letter from Sir S.Canning to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding his plans for leaving Spain, 13 May 1833
Letter from Sir Stratford Canning, [British minister on an extraordinary mission to Spain], Madrid, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: Canning hopes that Palmerston does not think that he has stayed in Madrid too long; he does hope to start off for home tomorrow via Irun, Bordeaux and Tours. Despatches addressed to Canning will reach him. He only intends to stay in Paris for a couple of days. Spain seems to be threatened by Don Carlos and by the Holy Alliance but no doubt Addington is sending despatches on these matters. Canning prefers to speak of these things with Palmerston, face to face. Canning had thought of sending a despatch with Lemesurier but he was too ill, and by the time Hammond will be free it will not be worth it. This letter is going with a French messenger. 13 May 1833 The letter is marked: "Private". The reply to this letter is numbered PP/GC/CA/259.
