| Sunny Bank, Hirnsey Lane
9 November 1868

My dear Sir

I am very much obliged to you for your note of this day week. I will forward a copy to Mr Urquhart. But pray tell me

1 Is the Russian Loan, of which you speak, the one | which has just been denied to exist, as a previous one?

2 Supposing Russia, though a Greek firm, were to deposit a million sterling in the Bank of England, and to withdraw it at a time when the Bank could not pay it without violating the Act of 1844, could not the | bankruptcy of the Bank be averted by an Order in Council suspending the Act—

I do not mean that the Act does not throw much power into Russia's hands, but does it go the length of enabling her (the English government being unwilling) to compel the Bank of England to stop payment—

Yours faithfully
