Letter from Walter Runciman, Windsor Terrace, Newcastle- Upon-Tyne, to WSC, thanks for letter of congratulation for speech on the Spion Kop despatches, also commenting on the forthcoming election, [Runciman was one of the Liberal candidates in Oldham], stating that in a double seat "the success of either us need not necessarily mean the discomfiture of the other - It would be odd to find that we were to become colleagues", but conceding that this was a remote chance and that "one of us will have to go down".
