PP/GC/LE/30 Letter from Sir G.C.Lewis to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, commenting on the role of Sir A.Spearman in arrangements for a government loan to Turkey, 27 August 1855
Letter from Sir George Cornewall Lewis, [second Baronet, Chancellor of the Exchequer], Harpton [Court], Radnorshire, Wales, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he encloses a copy of a letter [not present] from Sir Alexander Spearman, "containing an account of the steps he has taken as the Queen's commissioner in arranging the negotiation of the Turkish loan." Lewis was kept informed of all that took place while the arrangements were in progress. He concurred with everything that was done. If Palmerston sees no objection he will convey the government's appreciation to Spearman. "He has shown the greatest judgement and activity in the whole business, and his services, which have been entirely gratuitous, are entitled to a distinct acknowledgement." 27 Aug 1855
