From Lord Palmerston   24 Jany 1826

4 Haymarket

24 Jany 1826

My dear Sir

I send you the list of our additions for today. We still keep Progressing as the Americans call it and if we continue to move over Equal Spaces for some time to come we shall I think be entitled at no distant period to entertain pretty good hopes of success.

Peacock who is here says that the Atty Generals number consists not intirely of promises but includes all votes which can be reckoned upon

Of Bankes I can learn nothing but some of his friends told me the other day that He is sanguine; I should doubt however his having any good grounds for his confidence

My dear Sir

Yrs sincerely

Palmerston

I think we see our way to 450.
