Content:
Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, Brocket Hall, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: the tone of the newspapers may have a beneficial effect in France: “I am well aware of the extent of the influence of the English press in that country”. He fears driving Louis Philippe to a decided course of anti-liberal policy which would lead to a crisis in Europe. Melbourne does not understand Louis Philippe’s policies respecting Spain. He does not know what to suggest about making Villiers acquainted with the substance of Mr. Black’s letters. A bad fact from Villiers’ despatch that the riot of Madrid is all Carlists: “in times of revolution and disturbance the riot is a great power; in times of quiet it has no existence”. 16 Sep 1836
