Scope and Contents

Letter from [the 9th Duke of Marlborough] (Blenheim Palace) to WSC: praises his work at the Admiralty; refers to F E Smith [later 1st Lord Birkenhead] and "politicians who clothe the results of calculation in the language of enthusiasm"; cites the religious wars in sixteenth-century France as a warning against provoking religious passion in Ulster [Ireland]; complains about having to assess the site value of his land; describes his efforts to re-house his labourers through a co-operative and industrial society, giving this as an example of a landowner working to solve problems whilst radical elements in the Libeal party [such as David Lloyd George] devise schemes to attack the "hapless owners of the soil."
