TitleLetter from Austen Chamberlain to Max [Beaverbrook]
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter from 58 Rutland Gate, [ London], S.W. 7 on 22 September 1935 saying 'that the reviews of the book which I have seen have been very appreciative. I hope that they will help its sale, for it is true that I am a very poor man & the money which it may bring in is a consideration of importance to me'. 'There is not a word to which anyone could object in what you have written which is as generous as the note you wrote me when the excerpts were appearing in the D.T. & I should be other than I am if I were not touched by the warmth of feeling which you extend to me'.
There was only one error of fact and this was the timing of his arrival home in 1923. He has once again been offered the Washington Embassy but he has declined it verbally. He asks Max to 'look out' the letters which he sent to Bonar Law. He talks of writing another book. 'The writing fever is recurrent & Cassell urges another book for which I have some material in letters written for my father during his illness'. Accompanied by a typed transcript.
