Letter from Henry Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston to Sir Frederick Trench (c.1777-1859), 13 Mar. 1826
University of Cambridge objects to provisions of Bill to erect a new town prison; it will petition the House, but needs time; committee should be postponed; the University thinks the town is 'trying to steal a march upon them', and should have consulted before bringing the Bill to Parliament; the University would be liable to tax 'which they have never hitherto borne', and the town could take university or college land, 'even Clare Hall piece'
