“Stoke, Aug. 26th.

“. . . Upon our return [from Egham races] our only company arrived was Wm. Lamb, alias Viscount Melbourne. I had a good walk with him and found him very pretty company indeed, and very instructive about Ireland. At about 8 we sat down to dinner—Prince and Princess Lieven, Lord and Lady Cowper, Lord Melbourne, [Sir George] Warrender, Montron, C. Greville, Frank Russell, Luttrell and Motteux, which with C. Grenville, Churchill and myself, and the worthy family themselves [the Seftons] made 19 or 20. To-day the party is to be added to by Prince d’Aremberg, Villa Real, Alvanley and our flash Tom Duncombe. . . .

O’Connell’s election and Dawson’s speech at Derry* are conclusive proofs to me of some great approaching change in the fate of Ireland, and I wish to see that country before and during the operation of this crisis.”
