Extent1 item
Date1934
DescriptionLetter written from 58 Rutland Gate, London, S.W. 7 on 11 November 1934. He starts off with 'a word of explanation'. The letter says that he had no intention of saying anything more about the Declaration. He had heard too late about what was being done. 'My replacement on the League of Nations Union had apparently let the thing slide'. He saw the Yellow paper for the first time 'yesterday & my temperature went up so dangerously that I was obliged to let blood by a letter to the Times'. They agree to differ on their opinions of the League of Nations and Locarno. Accompanied by a typed transcript.
