Scope and Contents

Letter from Sir John Simon, on the notepaper of the Solicitor General, to WSC returning a cutting sent to him by Edward Marsh, advising him not to take legal action [against the article by Hugh Franklin, see CHAR 12/3/49] as [Franklin] had been sentenced for assault [on WSC], adding "The violence and hysteria of these people prevent what they say having any importance" and that he is sure that WSC has reached the same conclusion. In the post-script, he asks WSC to act as mediator between himself and F E [Smith, later Lord Birkenhead] in a "nasty personal controversy". Signed manuscript, annotated by WSC.
