TitleLetter from Joseph Chamberlain to Walter Wren
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from Highbury, Birmingham dated 1 December and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain sympathises with Wren's 'disappointment' and criticises Sir James Lawrence's behaviour in connection with the recent election. He predicts, however, that the current Parliament will not last long and adds that by the next election 'the Irish party may then have repented of their present policy' [Home Rule]. He advises Wren to persist in North Lambeth and stresses the need for organisational reform in London. He reassures Wren that he will not retract his comments about a policy and discusses the impact of the policy on the election result.
