PP/GC/CA/90 Letter from Sir S.Canning to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, concerning the currency policy of Lord Grey, 17 November 1830
Letter from Sir Stratford Canning, Hill Street, London, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: Canning has not been able to find any information concerning Lord Grey's currency policy from examining Grey's speeches in the last year's Parliament as he never mentioned the subject and Canning does not have information on speeches of previous sessions. Canning comments on the "grand debacle". "Whatever may happen as to individuals, I trust we may reckon upon a more liberal and improving system of policy, not only without danger to peace or the substantive parts of the constitution, but with better security for both." Canning has heard from a private source that a steam vessel was dispatched the previous night [16 November] to press Dom Miguel to declare an amnesty in preparation for the intended recognition [by Britain of Dom Miguel's rule in Portugal]. 17 Nov 1830
