TitleLetter from Joseph Chamberlain to J[ohn] A[lbert] Bright
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from Highbury, Birmingham dated 22 September and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain thanks Bright [1848-1924] for a copy of Mr Jay's pamphlet. He discusses home politics, which he believes is 'more hopeless than ever', commenting on the damage caused by the introduction of Gladstone's bills. He hopes Bright's father [John Bright, 1811-1889, politician] will remain member for Birmingham but suggests that if he should retire 'a son of his, holding his opinions on the Irish question would be very well received by the constituency'.
