Wikiquote attributes the well known quotation by Queen Victoria (about William E. Gladstone), "He speaks to me as if I was a public meeting." to the following:


"Memorandum to her private secretary Gen. Sir Henry Ponsonby (1874-11-18)"


Can anyone help me to locate a reliable source for this memorandum?
