Excerpt from The Life of Lord John Russell, Vol. 2 of 2
On July 19, a few days after his return to the Foreign Office, Lord Palmerston wrote 'a despatch to Mr. Bulwer enumerating the available candidates for the Queen of Spain's hand - among whom be included Prince Leopold - and adding that her Majesty's Government only wished the choice to fall on the one most likely to secure the happiness of the Queen and the welfare of the Spanish people. He went on to denounce arbitrary government in Spain, and to intimate a hope that no time would be lost in returning to the ways of the constitution and to obedience to the law. It has perhaps never been noticed that this famous despatch was dated on a Sunday. Lord John received it just as he was going to church.
