Laurence Housman to Mrs Cavendish Bentinck

Scope and Content

Mentions favourable reviews of his book 'The Sheepfold' though publisher at first fearful of presentation. 'I have been laughing over the election results'; disgusted by extravagances of public opinion; 'Kaiser's head on a charger' etc. Will gladly speak for her at Blandford if she contests E. Dorset. Interested in prison reform. 'Rather fun a rank rebel being the first woman MP' Fears for safety of her house in Harley Street 'Demos when his blood is up, hasn't much sense of beauty or of discretion either'.
