Descripción

7 ALsS and 1 TLS, three on letterheads of the London Mercury, and two on letterheads of the New Statesman; only three fully dated: 13 November 1917, 16 November 1924 and 27 November 1925, 12pp., 8vo and 12mo. Mostly on editorial matters. The letter of 13 November 1917, on New Statesman letterhead, Squire gives his reasons for not wanting to publish a piece on Ireland by RL: 'I certainly think that if we do not publish the letter we shall have to write something else on the subject of the vile - and in view of our war aims absolutely illogical - attacks on Ireland that are being published in the Tory papers. My objection to the letter is that I think it very bad tactics to produce your demands for independence, or at least for the admission of the right to be independent at the present moment when anything of the sort is naturally regarded as a stab in the back to those who are responsible for conduct of the war and incidentally an attack upon Redmond who is still after all the official leader of Irish Nationalism. You exaggerate the defects of Bennett's Daily News article; what he said about the officials at Dublin Castle was very likely quite true about them, and would probably have been true also about the old Russian administrators in Finland. I think too that you exaggerate the importance of the Spectator.' Also present is an apparently unpublished poem by Squire, on the Unionist MP William John MacGeagh MacCaw: 'MacGeagh MacCaw | He broke the law, | MacCaw MacGeagh | He had to pay; | 'Tis well: but O | We want to know | Why to God | He's not in Quod.'.
