PP/GC/LE/40 Letter from Sir G.C.Lewis to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, forwarding of a letter from G.Arbuthnot, 30 September [1855]
Letter from Sir George Cornewall Lewis, [Chancellor of the Exchequer], Harpton [Court, Radnorshire, Wales], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he asks that Palmerston read Arbuthnot's letter [not present] about a memorandum from Palmerston. Arbuthnot is mistaken in supposing that Lewis has formed a final opinion on the case. He wished Arbuthnot to set out his ideas in a minute, to be submitted to Palmerston. If Palmerston has no objection, the best course would be to put the papers in a box, send them to Panmure, and ask him for some further explanation before an official answer is sent from the Treasury. Lewis had to leave the country after his father's death. He was engaged in public business until the end of the [parliamentary] session. Since then he has attended to private affairs. He will obey any summons to town. 30 Sep [1855]
