Letter from [Joseph] Austen Chamberlain (9 Egerton Place [London]) to WSC, apologising for his delay in replying, and accepting WSC's invitation to himself and his wife to visit the Admiralty yacht HMS Enchantress. Chamberlain adds that they would join the Enchantress between tea and dinner, so as to dress on board, and that "Joe" [? Joseph Chamberlain] was delighted at the prospect. He further adds that they would bring a manservant and maid, but that his servant was not indispensable if bringing him would be inconvenient.

As a postscript, Chamberlain wonders if John Redmond was bluffing [on Irish Home Rule], and if not, what use were their conversations. He remarks that people should look up a much ridiculed speech by WSC on the "Heptarchy" (admitting that he had laughed at it himself), which might offer a way out, with the proviso that "Home Rule within Home Rule" would not satisfy any Unionist or any Ulsterman. Finally, Chamberlain notes that this was a very indiscreet postscript, for WSC's eyes only. Annotated by WSC that the letter should be kept, and that he had answered it.
