Written from Liverpool. Deals with the Preston Election. Says she is going there on the Monday, wonders if it is necessary to put in a man of their own; gives report of their agent on the standing candidate 'a full concession of all we want, warns them against the zealousness of Mrs Bright 'if you undertake to follow her leading she will give you no peace...I scarcely ever take any notice now of her daily telegrams.'
As soon as the Preston Election is finished she asks if they will send their Agent to Flintshire for the election there. Mrs Bright is beginning a 'furious telegraphic war about the Flint District' as she constitutes herself mentally 'the head and directness of the New Electoral League'.
