Letter from Sir George Cornewall Lewis, second Baronet, [Chancellor of the Exchequer], Downing Street, [Whitehall, London], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he has arranged with Panmure that Ramsden present the estimate for the embodied militia. This is the right course. He will check with the War Department, however, to prevent the possibility of mistake. Lewis wants to raise 200,000 pounds. The sum can be changed at any point prior to the resolution being placed in the hands of the chairman. ?Jan 1856
