My dear Lord Grey

      Evidence of interest from your part in favour of Poland is truly of the greatest price in my eyes so that I cannot prevent myself from renewing the request to urge your presence at Stafford House tomorrow morning. Your appearance if only for a moment would be a great favour for which all those who support Poland will be very appreciative.

 	I could count in this number my uncle to whom I would be so proud to be able to announce it and I flatter myself that you would not be unaffected by the gratitude which he would feel.

      Forgive me, for bothering you on this matter - and, pray, dear Lord Grey, see there a sign of my sincere respect.

 	L. Zamoiski
GRE/B60/13/1 translated from French. Year not given but the letter is found amongst other correspondence dating from 1832. Zamoiski was a Polish exile in London who championed the cause of Polish independence from Russia, a cause taken up by Thos Wentworth Beaumont (amongst others) to the extent that his youngest son, christened in 1836, had Zamoiski as a middle name. The uncle mentioned was Prince Czartobiski, President of the Polish National Government during the uprising against Russia in 1830
