Scope and Contents

Letter from Major General Sir Edward Spears [Conservative MP for Carlisle, Cumberland] (164, St Stephens House, Westminster, London, SW1) to WSC marked "personal" stating that the Chairman of the Men's Branch of the Conservative Association in his constituency has written to him regarding "the harm that is being done by some unpleasant comments in the papers, two of which I attach, together with a copy of his letter" [see CHAR 20/200/26-28], and reminding WSC that he had asked for a personal message at the time of his resignation. He states that, "I should have a perfectly safe seat were it not for the harm that may be done by attacks of this kind, and it must be conceded that to have served for so long in so important a post with no more acknowledgement that [?than] a fairly polite communique cannot appear to be very satisfactory to my constituents". [Signed typescript].
