Scope and Content

Copy letter. Received his letter with copy of Mrs Butler's letter to Childers. Not entirely satisfied: he has ascertained that 'the scoundrels who broke up that meeting were not hired roughs but some of the Childers Committee, and I think one was a factory inspector...for whom Childers got the berth'. He does not endorse the complete exoneration of the candidate.
