Rev George Butler to [unidentified man]

Scope and Content

Written from Liverpool. Recommends Mr Spence of Manchester as an unexceptionable candidate if brought forward at Preston by the 'Permissive Bill' party. About Mr Bright: 'Experience of three years has led me to doubt Mrs Bright's judgment in any practical matters' so he recommends taking no notice of her spate of telegrams other than courtesy demands.
