From Lord Palmerston 25 January 1826

25 Jany 1826

My dear Sir

I send you a list of the results of today. Piper I see is also in your list this morning received, which also contains Greenwood of Caius & Strutt of Triny whom we had before; but nevertheless between London & Cambridge we make a good days work, and having turned 400 I think we are going on well.

I make out a large number of persons from whom we may have expectations and if they should turn out well there is no fear of our [not] doing prosperously; at the same time much remains to be accomplished, and we must not disguise from ourselves that there are a great many names in our list which it is scarcely possible we should see in our Poll, from the variety of occupations pressing upon people at a General Election

My dear Sir

Yrs very sincerely

Palmerston

(Illeg) Aaron Browne of St. Johns from Kingston whose second vote we have got the first being given to Goulburn
