Content DescriptionAgrees with Newcastle's course towards the Orangemen of Canada; thinks they were wrong to indicate 'Party dissensions' when the visit was 'intended as a symbol of unity'; comments on the good reception of the Prince; thanks Newcastle for the sacrifice in 'personal comfort' he made in accompanying the Prince; says this is in the interest of the Empire and royal family; hopes the duke's health has not suffered; discusses the political changes in Italy; says Garibaldi and Cavour seem to have given up attacks on Rome and Austria respectively; thinks the Austrian government is 'sliding deliberately towards its ruin'; says that John Russell is endeavouring to discuss this problem with the Austrians.

Some parts of the text have been lost due to fire damage - possibly in the fire at Clumber in 1879.
