Content:
Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, Panshanger, [Hertfordshire], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: there is no sense in sending either naval or military officers to Constantinople unless it is positively settled beforehand what condition they are to be in and what command they are to have. If there is to be any alteration in the apportionment of the debt then the manner which Palmerston proposes is the most simple and clear. Melbourne is anxious about the recommencement of negotiations; the members of the cabinet do not understand the questions minutely but he is sure they are anxious for a settlement and will be indisposed to any course which delay a settlement. 24 Aug 1838
