TitleLetter from Joseph Chamberlain to W. H. Duignan
Extent1 item
Date1873
DescriptionLetter written from Broad Street, Birmingham dated 15 July. Chamberlain writes that he has heard of Mr McLean's death but will not 'make the first move'. He writes about Liberal Party in-fighting over the selection of candidates and jokes bitterly: 'two Tories will get in easily'.

[The letter appears to refer to the death of the MP for East Staffordshire, John Robinson McClean (1813-1873, civil engineer and Liberal Party politician), and the possibility of Joseph Chamberlain standing for election in that county.]
