TitleLetter from Joseph Chamberlain to Walter Wren
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from 40 Prince's Gardens, dated 11 June and marked 'Private'. In reply to Wren, Chamberlain writes that he will raise the question of a general fund with Mr Schnadhorst. He warns Wren not to criticise the existing organisation at Parliament Street, claiming that it will soon be under the control of Radical liberals and 'may hereafter prove very valuable in our hands'. He gives his opinion on what should be done if a Radical and Whig candidate stand against one another. Chamberlain expresses concern about the idea of giving top jobs to natives in India. He asserts that children from 'Board schools' are able to get into University and asks why Wren thinks change is necessary.
