Extent1 item
DescriptionPhotocopy of letter, dated 25 April, in which [Sir] Leslie [Frederic] Scott, [1869-1950; KC, MP, KCMG], 20 Egerton Terrace [London], expresses his admiration for Chamberlain's 'moves in policy [and] ...speeches' finding himself 'always and without exception the utmost agreement'. He writes enclosing and commenting on a newspaper cutting from the previous day's edition of [Le] Figaro written by Wladimir d'Ormesson. D'Ormesson refers to Germany's not having anticipated Britain's rapid swelling of its available forces through recruitment amongst the countries of the British Empire during World War I and suggests the possibility of this happening again.
