TitleLetter from Joseph Chamberlain to H. W. Massingham
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 29 March and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain writes that the report in Massingham's paper, the Daily Chronicle, claiming that 'three high Imperial authorities were privy to the Jameson raid' is false and must be corrected. Chamberlain fears that the statement may 'have the worst results in affecting President Kruger and his advisors' and goes on to defend the individuals implicated.

[Henry William Massingham, 1860-1924, journalist, was editor of the Daily Chronicle 1895-1899].
