|Letter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 22 January. Chamberlain writes to Massingham about matters in connection with worker's compensation. He plans to meet Mr Stanley but remarks that he must 'move cautiously' as he cannot 'commit' the government and his personal actions may be misinterpreted as corporate ones. On these grounds he would rather not meet the German representative. He wonders if Mr Hartmann will convert trade unionists to the principles of German system. He has been calculating the cost of universal compensation which he believes has been exaggerated.
