Content:
Copy, in the hand of a secretary, of a letter from Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, Carlton Gardens, London, to Sir Stratford Canning, British ambassador extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary at Constantinople: he has received Canning's letter of the 18 January [1851], and is sorry to hear that Canning considers Rose's appointment [as secretary of the British embassy at Constantiople] as not advantageous to the public service. The appointment had seemed a good one and it had enabled there to be a reduction in diplomatic positions, which was very desirable, given the present outlook of the House of Commons.<P> Rose will, of course, be under Canning's instructions in his new post and Palmerston hopes that he will be useful to Canning. If Canning could state the grounds for his objections to Rose, Palmerston could perhaps drop Rose some useful hints.<P> 3 Feb 1851: contemporary copy <P> PP/GC/CA/302, PP/GC/CA/230 and PP/GC/CA/232 also refer to Rose's appointment to the British embassy at Constantinople.
