**this item appears to have two separate notes written on it Recto – note 1 Letter from C. Chesney to W. Cabell 19 Sept 1837. What a bother about nothing particular 26 Sept. Mr. Cabell has caused a search to be made, but has not been able to trace any allusion in the dispatches, brought by Col. Chesney from India via Marseilles, to the fact of the existence of Russian agents in India, which it appears has got into the French Papers, and is supposed to have been gathered from some of the dispatches to the address of the Secret Committee. – If such a circumstance is mentioned in any of the Letters received by Sir John Hobhouse by that conveyance it would lead to the inference that the Letter had been opened & read in Paris. – Col. Chesney is quite certain that the information could not have been obtained at Marseilles, as the Letters were in his possession during the fumigation, & until they were forwarded to Paris. WG 20 Sept. 1837 Note 2: I have never seen the paragraph alluded to – and consider all such gossip to be beneath our notice – This only taking up the time of the office to attend to the rumors. JH 31 Sept 37 Colonel Chesney’s expedition is now at an end & any communication between him and Cabell except so far as relates to the publication of his proposed volumes must, of course, be nearly of a private nature.
