Transcript of DX/650 - Letter from George Canning (Prime Minister 1770-1827) to Sir John Gladstone, 27 June 1822, arranging visit to Liverpool as soon as House rises. Fludger Sheet [?] June 27 1822 My Dear Sir, I think it would be premature to make any communication respecting the time of my arrival and stay at Liverpool until the period of closing the Session can be a little more distinctly ascertained. Yesterday I was alarmed by [page 2] hearing from Mr Huskisson that they now look to the first, if not the second, week in August. Of course my visit cannot take place, Parliament sitting, and all that could now be said therefore would be that it shall take place as soon as possible after the session closes. Ever My Dear Sir Most Sincerely Yours Geo[rge] Canning [Page 3] PS I must not omit to thank you for the kindness of your first note of this morning; of which (in the case supposed) I will not scruple to air [?] it myself. I return Mr Mawdeleys letter. The Resolutions I have sent to Mr Huskisson.
