PP/GC/LE/154 Letter from Sir G.C.Lewis, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding protocol for the award of honours, 1 January [1862]
Letter from Sir George Cornewall Lewis, second Baronet, [Secretary of State for War], War Office, [London], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: the Great Master of the Order of the Bath is "a necessary authority" for appointing new members of the Order. The Prince Consort was Great Master. It will be necessary to fill this office before Edgar Bowring can be created Knight Companion. Lewis asks Palmerston to consider who would be a proper person to recommend to the Queen for the position. The Prince of Wales seems the obvious choice. 1 Jan 1862
