Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter from 24 Egerton Terrace, [London] S. W. 3 on 28 February 1937 sending sympathies regarding his defeat in the election, but saying that if he had been elected to the House he might have felt let down. 'I hope that you don't take the disappointment too much to heart. I have always had a fear that if you were elected, the House itself might be a disappointment to you, & and that what you might be able to accomplish would seem to so active a mind as yours hardly worth the time that you would have have to give to it.' However if he still wants to enter the House, he hopes another opportunity arises. Photocopy of original which is held in the papers of Lord Cherwell, Nuffield College, Oxford.
