Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter dated 14 June and marked 'Private'. Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor] praises Chamberlain's courageous speeches, adding: 'the tact of never affecting or even seeming to drag colleagues along but giving them all the kudos of being in the van is more remarkable than all'. He writes: 'I can't help thinking how much things c[oul]d have been pushed forward if Cobden had had & executed this idea of yours' and comments on Cobden's actions [Richard Cobden, 1804-1865, manufacturer and politician].
