PS Refers to events in Tuscany and Rome and the Italian revolutionary party; shares the opinion of Count Nesselrode that Count Collanado may not go to Brussels to represent Austria; thinks Austria may be happy to allow France to retreat from the position adopted towards Italy to allow relations between Austria and Sardinia to be returned to normal.
