Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from Highbury, Birmingham dated 31 August. Chamberlain regrets that he cannot give Russell [1834-1920, first Baron Russell of Liverpool, newspaper editor and proprietor] his support, having already agreed to support Cameron Corbett [1856-1933, politician and 1st Baron Rowallan and politician]. He writes about a forthcoming meeting in Glasgow and gives his opinion that the Radicals should not interfere in a divisional contest. Chamberlain discusses Hartington's speech, which he read 'with feelings almost of dismay' and which he intends to answer when speaking in Warrington on the 8th.
