HL Deb 25 March 1858 vol 149 cc703-4

I know that your Lordships, in common with the country at large, take great interest in the fate of the engineers who have been for so many months imprisoned at Naples. I am happy to tell your Lordships that one of these men, who was set at liberty a few days ago, arrived this morning in England in a very improved state of health—and that there is every reason to hope that his health will soon be completely restored. Just before coming to your Lordships' House, I received a telegraphic despatch from Mr. Lyons, stating that he had so far effected an improvement in the condition of the other engineer, that he was now out on bail, and was living in the consul's house.
