Chamberlain thanks Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor] for sending his article. He remarks that 'bad news from Egypt' will overshadow domestic issues.

He comments: 'Personally I should be obliged to them' and expresses his own desire to see more Radical electoral candidates. He writes that the landowner Lord Carrington will make an important speech in his favour and comments on [George] Goschen's speech about local authority powers.
