DescriptionLetter written from 40 Prince's Gardens, London dated 22 May. Chamberlain commends Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor] on his article. He writes that he is under pressure not to break up the Goverment and leave Gladstone 'in the lurch' and at the same time does not want to stand against 'that section of our party which is opposed to the policy of coercion'. He gives his views on the creation of 'peasant proprietorships' and local government in Ireland.
