This letter has been addressed by Lord Palmerston (signature below address) from Romney 21 November 1820, to B C Williams Esquire, 9 Lincolns Inn, London. The letter contained within, dated the day before, is written by E P Buckley. Lord Palmerston (1784-1865), after whom Palmerston North was named, was born Henry John Temple, son of Viscount Palmerston. He served as a British Member of Parliament, in high office and then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, almost continuously from 1807 to his death. The donor of the Lord Palmerston collection, F C Holland of England (who was interested in philately and postal history) donated a number of items related to Lord Palmerton in the 1970s, after visiting Palmerston North. Transcription of letter: My dear Sir. I have been obliged to repair part of this House but more particularly the offices, and to make some farm buildings on the small copyhold (?) I bought last, and not withstanding I cut down timber that produced three hundred boards, which I thought could have been sufficient to pay for it, I find I have still over five hundred pounds to pay, which I cannot do out of my income, and tho I am very … to borrowing any more money, I cannot avoid it in this case and should be glad to borrow five hundred pounds, and I should think there would be sufficient security after the other sums for as small a sum as five hundred pounds, especially as this place (letter continues p.2) and the last copyhold were both included to strengthen there security for the money I borrowed … … … if you can manage this for me, as it will be great accommodation for me. I am dear sir your obedient servant, E P Buckley
