William Hesketh Lever (Lord Leverhulme) letters

Scope and Content

(1) Address: The Hill, Hampstead Heath, North End, London NW3. To A B Cooper, 34b Earlsfield Road, Wandsworth Common, London SW18. In reply to a letter of 19 April. 'In my opinion the greatest discovery of the twentieth century has been that making war on peaceful neighbours does not pay ... We are greatly indebted to Mr. Norman Angell for being the first to call attention to this great fact ...'.
(2) Address: Port Sunlight, Cheshire. To C D Melville, Meole Hall, Shrewsbury. Refuses a request to study fish curing and canning in Stornaway [Isle of Lewis], as the developments are proceeding slowly, and the proposed works far from completion.
Both letters signed by Lord Leverhulme.
