Dear Sir John
I have received your letter and address; the latter appears quite safe and unobjectionable. I need not say that I wish you every success; but Greenwich is not an easy seat for a Conservative to win.
Edward George Geoffrey Smith-Stanley, 14th Earl of Derby. (1799 -1869) English statesman, three times Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
The recipient, Sir John Heron-Maxwell, 6th Baronet (1808-1885), was a per, and a captain in the Royal Navy.
Very Good. Item #4477
