Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 12 April and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain asks Rendel [1834-1913, Baron Rendel, industrialist, politician, and philanthropist] to read over a document [possibly Chamberlain's testimonial in support of Jesse Collings, JCLAdd/287]. He informs Rendel that the petition at Ipswich has decided against Mr Collings and asks if Rendel can contribute money towards a collection for him.

[Jesse Collings served as MP for Ipswich from 1880-1886, when his agents were found guilty of bribery - although he was personally exonerated he was unseated by petition].
