  Reference Description Date range  
CHAR 2/283/99

Copy of a letter from Sir [Joseph] Austen Chamberlain (the Goring Hotel [Ebury Street, London]) to A H Richards [Secretary of the Focus in Defence of Freedom and Peace, earlier the Freedom and Peace Union, and Peace with Freedom Movement]. Chamberlain states that though he agrees with the Focus's statement of objects, he cannot take part in a Focus meeting at the Albert Hall or serve as a member of the Committee. He explains that he has to spend more time on private affairs, and his hands are already full without adding to his engagements, but offers to write a short letter to be read at the meeting, if WSC or the Committee wishes it.
