|Letter written from 40 Prince's Gardens [London], dated 10 March and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain thanks Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor] for the support shown in his newspaper. He discusses government supervision of shipping and writes that he has tried to address the problem of 'over-insurance' in his Bill. He argues that if shipowners will not support the Bill they must suggest alternative measures. He explains that a Select Committee would delay the legislation, which is long overdue.
