§ MR. B. COCHRANE
wished to know whether the Government of Greece had paid the interest upon the loan; and whether the right hon. Baronet had any objection to lay on the Table a copy of Lord 1390 Aberdeen's despatch upon the subject; also, whether he had received any official, confirmation of the report that one of the recent mails, in passing the Isthmus of Corinth, had been attacked by a banditti, the despatches seized, and the whole of them, with one exception, opened.
§ SIR R. PEEL
said, that the Government of Greece had not made any payment on account of the loan; in consequence of which it would be the duty of Her Majesty's Government, under the Convention, to make provision for that failure. He should not object to lay on the Table a copy of the despatch alluded to; but to the production of other Papers connected with that despatch he could not consent. With respect to the report that a mail had been stopped, and the despatches of Sir E. Lyons opened, the only information which he had received on the subject was contained in a letter from Sir E. Lyons, in which he stated that the mail of the 13th instant had been stopped about twenty miles from the capital; that every letter considered to contain money or despatches had been seized and opened; and that the only one which escaped was an official letter to Mr. Ralli, the Greek Consul in London.
