foreign office, 20th Oct. 70.
my dear lord—I am so happy to hear that Cardinal Antonelli is out of danger. Your last accounts of him quite upset me.
On inquiry, I am told that the salute of the Flag was ordered at the Admiralty, not here.
pg 258I shall report what you tell me of Severn, but pray let Mr. Gladstone know all these things; he is in town for the Cabinet. Lord Granville has come up, but has not had time to receive me yet. Has he written to appoint Marchese Patrizi at any particular time?
I am powerless in all these matters; but, as there is a Cabinet, and that Mr. Gladstone will be responsible for the Roman policy of the Government, which I have not yet been made acquainted with, the moment is favourable to urge upon him to submit his views to the Cabinet at once.
I am finally settled and much nearer than I was to York Place namely, in Lady Salisbury's (now Derby) house at 17 Upper Grosvenor Street, W. (Purcell ii. 465–6)
Gladstone wrote to Manning on 5 November 1870 (GD vii. 592; not located).b]]
