TitleLetter from Neville Chamberlain to Sir Leslie Frederic Scott
Extent1 item
DescriptionPhotocopy of letter, dated 29 July, in which Chamberlain, 10 Downing Street [London], writes to The R[igh]t Hon[orable] Lord Justice Scott, KC [MP, KCMG; 1869-1950] thanking 'My dear Leslie' for his letter of approval and interest, and a promised book. Looking back on the last year he feels that progress has been made [perhaps since his being elected, May 1937] and anticipates going away the next week 'with a greater feeling of confidence in the future than [he]...has been able to entertain for some time'. He expresses the belief that people are starting to feel that he is giving a clear lead about [the way forward] in Europe and that this is consolidating opinion.
