Letter from William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, Downing Street, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: a letter he has just received from Edward Ellice in Paris states that Granville will write to Palmerston stating that the “American squabble” is settled. De Broglie is safe for the present. Palmerston should communicate more with Sebastiani and be less exe?ve in his communications through Lord Granville with De Broglie. 7 Jan 1836 Reply: PP/GC/ME/61/enc 1 Stanhope Street, Edward Ellice busies himself in matter in which he has no knowledge or concern. Palmerston has been much misinformed if Sebastiani complains of want of communication on Palmerston’s part. He rejects Ellice’s suggestion of doing all business twice, once for those ministers abroad and once for those at home, 7 Jan 1836
