TitleLetter from Joseph Chamberlain to Walter Wren
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from Highbury, Birmingham dated 18 January and marked 'Private'. In reply to Wren, Chamberlain expresses his opinion that the Pall Mall Gazette is 'a disgrace to journalism'. He passionately defends his position on the Irish question, dismissing appeals to his 'supposed political interests': 'I do not care a brass pin for my political interests, nor am I in the least anxious to lead the Liberal party except on my own lines'. He remains opposed to Gladstone's Home Rule Bill and concludes: 'I am not going to ruin my country in order to unite my party'.
