Reference Code: GBR/0014/CHAR 28/43/11

Scope and Contents

Letter from Lloyd Bryce (The North American Review, 3 East Fourteenth Street, New York [United States]) to Lady Randolph [Churchill] in which he asks her whether she would be prepared to write an article about the influence of women in British politics which he says could be contrasted with the lack of interest shown by American women. He discusses the influence wielded by Lady Beaconsfield "through her womanly tact and study of her husband's interests"; suggests that alternatively she could write about the position of women in London society; and says that he would pay her 12 guineas. Annotated by [Lady Randolph] "Ldy B [Lady Beaconsfield] was a most vulgar old cad & did B [Beaconsfield] more harm than good.".
