PP/GC/LE/86 Letter from Sir G.C.Lewis to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding bank failures in Scotland, 10 November 1856
Letter from Sir George Cornewall Lewis, second Baronet, [Chancellor of the Exchequer], Downing Street, [Whitehall, London], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: "the Glasgow people" have written stating that they do not wish a deputation at present. "I suspect that their real object was to save either Dennistoun's house or the Western Bank, and that the failure of those two establishments having been declared, they abandon their design. The absence of a similar purpose from the City just now is a good sign as to the state of things in London." 10 Nov [1856]
