Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 18 April. Chamberlain writes to Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor] about 'tactics' for securing the extension of the suffrage and redistribution, taking into account possible rejection of these plans by the House of Lords. He writes that he will not reply to the Duke of Argyll, but he remarks on 'the extreme sensitiveness of these great landlords & believers in the Divine rights of property to the first appearance of the social problem which, as you know, I believe will shortly assume increased prominence'.
