PP/GC/CA/297 Copy of a letter from Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, to Sir S.Canning, concerning the demands by Russia for the expulsion of two Poles, Czayka and Lenoir, from Turkey, 5 October 1850: contemporary copy
Copy, in the hand of a secretary, of a letter from Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, Broadlands, Hampshire, to Sir Stratford Canning: he has heard from Dudley Stuart that the reason why the Russians want the extradition of the two Poles, Czayka and Lenoir, is that they are encouraging the Christian population in European Turkey to support the Sultan. The Porte would be wise not to expel them even though the Russians may well have some grounds for their demand: but the men have been many years in Turkey.<P> 5 Oct 1850: contemporary copy
