Printed Circular

Derbyshire Record Office

A copy of a printed circular seeking support in the Cambridge University election of 1820, addressed to Sir Henry FitzHerbert of Tissington Hall, Derbyshire. In the circular, dated 24 February 1820, Lord Palmerston 'solicit[s] the favour of your Vote and Interest at the approaching Election'; in the event, Palmerston was returned unopposed in March 1820. Copies of the circular, printed in London, were presumably sent to a large number of eligible voters; it is signed by hand, 'Palmerston'.
