TitleCopy despatch from A. Buchanan, Madrid, Spain, to 3rd Earl of Malmesbury [J. Harris], Foreign Office, London; 20 Dec 1858.
Date20 December 1858
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionReports that Mr Salamanca has caused a sensation by giving a party at which there were no ladies and to which only members of the Moderado Party were invited; this was an attempt to prove that the party is not in a state of dissolution, as the government maintains, but is numerous and united; it is certainly numerous, but as a government journal has pointed out, is only united in partaking of Mr Salamanca's hospitality; he [Buchanan] was invited to the party but he subsequently heard that it was a demonstration against the government and that the Queen had told some palace officials not to attend; as he did not wish to compromise his position he therefore corresponded with Mr Salamanca on the matter.
