Letter from Herbert Asquith [later 1st Lord Oxford and Asquith] (The Wharf, Abingdon, [Oxfordshire]) to WSC rejecting the assertions of Lord Northcliffe [earlier Sir Alfred Harmsworth] that J A Spender is in danger of being turned out of the Westminster Gazette and that Liberal journalists should be given more honours.
