Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from 40 Prince's Garden [London], dated 21 July and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain tells Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor] that he thinks the proposed agitation in the House of Lords will have a strong following. He goes on to say that he opposes House of Lords reform, writing: 'If the time has not come for abolishing the second Chamber it would be much better for Radicals to confine themselves to limiting its power by some such plan as the suspensory veto recommended by Bright'.
