HL Deb 02 July 1867 vol 188 c848

, referring to the debate on this subject last evening, called attention to certain mistakes into which the noble Viscount (Viscount Stratford de Redcliffe) who had introduced the subject had fallen, or was reported to have fallen, in quoting from the Treaty of 1858 in reference to the Protectorate of the Danubian Principalities with France. The noble Viscount read a portion of the Treaty in the original French in support of his statement, and gave it as his opinion that among the Papers presented to their Lordships on the subject a right version of the Treaty should have been included, so that they might not have to accept one on the authority of the noble Viscount, which might be apt to prejudice their minds.
