Content DescriptionReports that Platen has informed him that Austria and the governments which acted with her (Bavaria, W├╝rttemberg, Saxony, the two Hesses and Nassau) persist in urging the Diet to adopt their proposals, in respect to the Assembly of Delegates; they would have insufficient votes to force this on Prussia and the other states; Hanover would have the casting vote; reports of Bismarck's attitude indicate that a conflict would be difficult to avoid; informs him that states like Hanover, which were most affected by 'Bismarck's sallies', tended to take little notice of him; was afraid that something in the Royal Speech at the opening of the Session would add 'oil to the flames'; looked forward to hearing from him.
