Letter from John Ponsonby, first Viscount Ponsonby, [British ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary at Vienna], to Henry John Temple, third Viscount Palmerston: he is pleased that Palmerston was not offended by his last letter; he discusses the contents of his dispatch. A manifesto for a full, complete amnesty has been pronounced. Radestsky has sent to the nobles and other who have left Milan unequivocal assurances that if they choose to return they will be free from all questions. The Milanese and Piemontese feel great animosity towards each other. He hopes the Austria will give the institutions to the Italians which will enable the natives to hold office, as promised. Charles Albert holding power in Lombardy would not be a good thing. He discusses the danger of the establishment of French forces in Italy. 30 Sep 1848
