PP/GC/PO/184 Letter from Lord Ponsonby to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, concerning a draft reply to Ponsonby's note to the Sultan about Admiral Ricord's squadron passing from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea, 13 February 1834

Content:
Letter from John Ponsonby, second Baron Ponsonby, later first Viscount Ponsonby, [British ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary at Constantinople], Therapia, to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he encloses a copy of a reply to Palmerston's official note to the Sultan on the passage of Admiral Roussin's squadron to the Black Sea. He thinks that the Russian ambassador saw this reply. The Porte can probably keep to the 1829 treaty [of Adrianople] rather than submit to Russian pressure now. This projected reply may be different from the formal one not yet received. 13 Feb 1834 This letter is marked: "Private", and was received on 9 March 1834. Enclosed is a copy, in French, of a draft letter from the Porte to John Ponsonby, second Baron Ponsonby, ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to Constantinople,
