Date:

Content:
Memorandum from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne: thinks it would be well to do as he proposes an mention the matter to Brunnow but not as if he places full reliance on the information. Derbyshire is evidently a “wild, conceited chap” ready to go anywhere for anything. Melbourne does not much like his connections and patrons: Long Wellesley, Ellice and Durham. At the same it must be remembered that he gave Durham information which turned out to be correct. Oct 1839
