Letter from Lady Violet Bonham-Carter [earlier Violet Asquith and Violet, Lady Bonham Carter, later Lady Asquith of Yarnbury] (The Wharf, Sutton Courtney, Berkshire) to WSC on: the danger of a reaction towards Labour if the Liberals moved closer to the Tories, which is what Labour would like to happen; the grave difficulties James Ramsay Macdonald would have with his own supporters if he got into office; Herbert Asquith's belief that it is not in any party's interests to go into office at the moment; Bonham-Carter's belief that the second ballot, proportional representation and the alternative vote would ruin the Liberals.
