Dear Talbot

I neither forgot nor mislaid your paper but I found it was unnecessary to communicate it actually to Ld John, <1> as I found upon conversing that both he & many members of the cabinet had received suggestions of a precisely similar nature inclosed the projects of allocations to committees would make a budget

all has been under consideration tho there is a great disinclination to introduce any essential change

but I must not say more.

ever Yours truly
Lansdowne

H. F. Talbot Esq

Notes:

1. Lord John Russell (17921878), statesman.
