Scope and Contents

Letter from George Bernard Shaw (10 Adelphi Terrace, London) to Mrs Cornwallis West [Lady Randolph Churchill] in which he discusses the insurance and possible profit from ["Shakespeare's England"]. He says that he does not wish to discourage her but gives precedents of tournaments which have been financially disastrous. In postscripts he refuses an invitation, discusses WSC's stance over Home Rule and his work on his book "John Bull's Other Ireland", reassures her "Do not worry about W [WSC]. They will not break his head, though they may possibly break each others with a few windows thrown in" and invites her to lunch. Signed typescript with manuscript additions. Includes notepaper annotated "Mr Bernard Shaw".
