TitleLetter from Joseph Chamberlain to Sir Rowland Blennerhassett
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 29 June and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain makes clear that he is in agreement with Blennerhassett [1839-1909, journalist and politician] about the Lord Chancellor's recent speeches. He criticises the Lord Chancellor for trying to 'cultivate the Germans at the expense of allusions offensive to the French', and describes his speeches as 'ill-advised gush unlikely to secure any useful object but calculated to bring us more or less into contempt'.
