Scope and Contents

Letter from Lord Gladstone [former Home Secretary, earlier Herbert Gladstone] (7 Grosvenor Place [London]) to WSC saying that he is pleased that WSC is implementing his [Gladstone's] proposals regarding prison reform. He objects to WSC's announcement of the proposals in the House of Commons, which inferred that WSC had initiated the proposals, and had done "the obviously right thing, and that I from foolishness and inhumanity did not", as he had asked [Sir Evelyn Ruggles] Brise [Chairman of the Prison Commission] to draw up the proposals which WSC is now enacting. Signed typescript.
