PRIME MINISTER HENRY JOHN TEMPLE (GREAT BRITAIN) - AUTOGRAPH ENVELOPE SIGNED - HFSID 317490

 
PRIME MINISTER HENRY JOHN TEMPLE (GREAT BRITAIN)
One famed British Prime Minister addresses a message to a future one, William Gladstone
Autograph Note signed: "Private/ The Right Honorable/ William Gladstone/ Palmerston", 5x3¼ note affixed to 9¾x6 cardstock (2 surfaces). Clipped from a hand-delivered envelope. Prime Minister Henry John Temple of Great Britain (1784-1865), popularly known as Lord Palmerston due to his Irish Peerage title as the 3rd Viscount Palmerston, was Britain's Secretary of State for War (1809-1828), Foreign Secretary (1830-1834, 1835-1841, 1846-1851) and Prime Minister (1855-1858, 1859-1865). He held office almost continuously for nearly half a century from 1807 until his death. Because he held an Irish peerage rather than an English one, he was able to sit in the House of Commons. Disliked by Queen Victoria and often abrasive in dealing with foreign governments - he held a lifelong antipathy to the United States - Palmerston was nevertheless effective in promoting British interests. Although he opposed slavery, Palmerston sympathized with the Confederacy on the grounds that a breakup of the United States would benefit Britain. He also had very strained relations with William Gladstone (1809-1898), who would succeed Palmerston as leader of the Liberal Party and begin the first of his three terms as Prime Minister in 1868. Toned. Lightly stained. Edges lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
