PRIME MINISTER HENRY JOHN TEMPLE (GREAT BRITAIN) - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 10/15/1847 - HFSID 23880

 

PRIME MINISTER HENRY JOHN TEMPLE (GREAT BRITAIN)
The Foreign Secretary of Great Britain penned his signature and a letter regarding the Falkland Islands
Autograph Letter Signed: "Palmerston", as Foreign Secretary, 2½p, 4½x7¼. Marvins Hotel, Regent St, 1847 October 18. To D. Lindley. In part: "The inclosed (sic) Paper [not present] contains a Portion of a much larger Quantity of what was sent to me last year from the Falkland Islands…It came in Bags which I sent over to my agriculturist in Ireland…He has lately informed me that none of it has come up, and he has sent me this sample expressing a Doubt whether it is seed, but only fragments of some other Part of the Plants & I should be glad to have your opinion on that Point." 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. Ink transfer, light show through. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
