PP/GC/ME/152 Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding a treaty about the Spanish frontier and the expedition to Africa, 13 February 1837

Content:
Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: Melbourne entirely concurs with the King in his opinion of Palmerston’s letter to Sebastian. When the King told Granville he now could obtain from [?umann] the additional document for the Spanish frontier, which Duchatel has now given him, he admitted that without he had not effectually executed the treaty. The account given in the secret report of what Bertin de Vaux said of the extreme self-conceit of the King is very curious and not [?unlikely] to be true. Melbourne is strongly of the opinion that [?Caradoe] should not under any circumstances or in any capacity accompany the expedition to Africa. 13 Feb 1837
