PP/GC/PO/576 Letter from Lord Ponsonby to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, regarding Austrian affairs,17 August 1848
Letter from John Ponsonby, first Viscount Ponsonby, [British ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary at Vienna], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: if the representations are true, he is afraid of the state of things. If Charles Albert makes peace with Austria, Ponsonby cannot see on what grounds France or England could interfere. Austria is held to be the legitimate sovereign of Lombardy and subdued a rebellion there after offering terms to the rebels which were destroyed. The Venetians have declined a republic. He fears two Austrian generals were murdered in cold blood in Bologna. 17 Aug 1848
