Lord Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston, K.G.,
G.C.B., PC (1784 – 1865)
Twice Prime Minister of Great Britain
Palmerston was educated at Harrow,
Edinburgh, and St John's College, Cambridge. He succeeded to his
father's title on April 17, 1802 as the Third Viscount of Palmerston.
Before he was 24 he stood in two contested elections for the University
of Cambridge, losing both, but then entered Parliament as MP for a
pocket borough, Newport, Isle of Wight, in June 1807. He began his
political career as a Tory and a Junior Lord of the Admiralty from 1807.
A few months later he delivered his maiden speech in the House of
Commons in defense of the expedition to Copenhagen. This speech was so
successful that when Perceval formed his government in 1809 he asked
this young man of 25 to become Chancellor of the Exchequer. However
Palmerston preferred the less-important office of Secretary at War.He later went on to become one of the great statesmen of the Victorian
Era, leading the nation twice as Prime Minister. Here is an extremely early
Palmerston signature from his days as Secretary of War.
Fine Document on
batonne laid paper with Royal Watermark, measuring 6¾" wide x
(170mm x 220mm) and signed by Lord
Palmerston as Secretary of War. The document has two horizontal file
folds with bold, strong signatures. Docketing
notations on the reverse. The document was "Printed by W. Clowes and Co.
Northumberland-court, Strand, for His Majesty's Stationary Office". This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a
scarce War Office Document signed by one of the great British Statesmen
of the 19th Century.
