Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, Pashanger, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: thinks William Russell too sanguine and that he was unlikely to succeed to the extent he anticipated. If Russell succeeds to any degree in softening the cabinet feeling he will have achieved something. Durham went sailing with the Emperor. Palmerston may instruct Claricarde as he likes but Melbourne is unsure whether it is worthwhile him refusing to accompany the Emperor, if invited. 2 Apr 1839
