|Letter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 6 March. In answer to Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor], Chamberlain writes that he expects an (unspecified) Bill to pass in the Commons: 'I do not think there is any danger of a serious cave'. He goes on to say that he would value shipowners' advice on his Shipping Bill: 'They all accept the principle that a man ought not to make a profit by the loss of his ship. Will they tell me how this can be prevented by any provision other than, or better than, those which I have proposed?' He fears the parliamentary opposition to the Bill and hopes for an increase in public support.
