Scope and Contents

Letter from Pamela, Lady Lytton (Barrackpore, [India]) to WSC approving of the appointment of Edward Wood [later Lord Irwin and Lord Halifax] as Viceroy of India but arguing that Lord Lytton deserved to be appointed and is therefore disappointed. Refers to an allegedly "unbalanced" letter written by Lytton to 1st Lord Birkenhead [earlier F E Smith] and argues that Birkenhead was himself unbalanced for preferring to appoint Lord Peel, who lacks the necessary qualities and whose wife is unsuitable, rather than Lytton as Viceroy. Describes the pleasant time they are having in India and refers to Sarah Churchill's appendicitis.
