Content:
Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, Windsor Castle, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: Melbourne will give Prince Louis Bonaparte a passport but not in assumed name. “He is a strange young man and nobody knows what he intends to do, or what he may do”. The only use of a passport is to enable him to leave Switzerland; it is not necessary to empower him to come to England. If he should go to France and “kick up a row” as he did in Strasbourg it would be an awkward thing if he would do so under an English passport. 23 Sep 1838
