Scope and Contents

Letter from WSC to 1st Lord Curzon on women's suffrage, recommending a referendum on the subject, provided that he could be assured that the argument would not be applied to Home Rule or other measures of a party nature; WSC asks if Curzon, and other prominent Conservative Anti-Suffragists (such as F E Smith [later 1st Lord Birkenhead] and [Joseph] Austen Chamberlain) would be prepared to make it clear that there were great distinctions between a referendum on a non- party question and one on party questions and that support of one would not lead to charges of illogicality or inconsistency in regard to the other. [Manuscript copy in letter book].
