The letter dated 7 October 1837 from Baron Edmund Lyons to Robert Stopford was written from Athens, where Lyons was serving as British plenipotentiary to King Otto of Greece. There is also a ten-page English translation of a letter from the Provincial Deputation of Valencia to the Spanish Queen Regent (Maria Cristina de Borbon) dated 15 August 1837.
