Envelope addressed in the hand writing of George Canning, from London and date stamped 31 May 1826. Geo. Canning's name underlined next to address. George Canning was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for a short time in 1827, when Lord Palmerston was his Secretary at War. This record is part of a collection relating to Lord Palmerston (1784-1865), after whom Palmerston North was named.
