10Jul1864, No Dissolution!

CHAMOUNIX, 7th Sunday after Trinity, July 10th, 1864.
—Behold ! a telegram from the Duke, with the news that there will be no dissolution, Government having a majority of 18. This evening F. has spouted to me Layard's admirable defence of Ld. Russell's policy, which one wd think must have influenced votes. I am come to a pretty pass, when I find myself crowing over the Whig victory !
