Letter from John Ponsonby, first Viscount Ponsonby, [British ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary at Constantinople], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: Ponsonby thinks that the Admiral’s conduct is difficult to understand. Ponsonby has prevented complaints in the official sense but “the grief is felt”. They should be very grateful he has not ruined the cause. Lord Londonderry has taken offence with Ponsonby; he has written him a letter and says he will complain of Ponsonby in the House of Lords. 8 Nov 1840 The letter is marked “Private” and “confidential”. The docket notes that it was received on 29 November 1840. Enclosed is a wrapper.
