From Lord Palmerston 3 February 1826

4 Haymarket

3 Feby 1826

My dear Sir

I send you a list of additional votes which make my list amount to 490. So that we continue to make progress I shall not fail to attach the Probables & any others that I hear of; indeed I have plenty of work on my hands both epistolary & perambulatory. Pollack offered to lay a bet here two days ago that the Attorney polled twice as many as any other candidate; shares in the bet on the other side are at a premium in this room.

I could come down at any time but with more convenience in the course of this next week than later because my Estimates will be coming on after that & then I could not engage to be able to leave London on any given day. If it is thought that it would be useful that I should come to Cambridge let me have a line by Sundays post & I will come down either Monday or Tuesday evening.

My dear Sir

Yrs sincerely
