Letter One (12 September 1887): 12mo, 4 pp. Bifolium. On aged paper with a little wear to extremities. He has read in the paper that 'Aberdeen & some Gladstonian M.P's are going to deliver Home Rule Addresses in Crieff on 27th. Sept.' and thinks that 'the Liberal Unionists ought to be very active in Scotland' during the autumn. If it is 'of any service' to Currie or 'to the cause' Camperdown is 'ready to make a speech in Crieff on any night you like'. Although the Unionists 'have lost a few seats lately', Camperdown does not believe 'that a Home Parliament for Ireland is commending itself to the country [.] the more the question is discussed in public, the better for us in Scotland.' Letter Two (16 September 1887): 12mo, 6 pp. Bifolium and single leaf. Good, on aged paper, with wear to outer edge of single leaf. He has received Currie's telegram. 'Thursday the 29th. is the day fixed for the Road Trustees Meeting at Forfar - As we have to elect a new Chairman in place of Sir John Ogilvy, I am rather anxious to attend it'. If Currie prefers to make it an 'ordinary meeting with Constituents' it will 'look as if we were afraid to have a meeting on the Home Rule question in answer to theirs, and yet were afraid not to hold a meeting of some kind'. Camperdown will not be able to make the 'militant speech' he has in mind if he is in the chair. He feels that 'an Anti Home Rule Meeting' with speeches by Currie and himself 'will be quite enough to fill up the evening - A public meeting ought not to exceed two hours in length - and there are always one or two Local Speakers who wish to say something'. 'Peers, who cannot do much for the cause in Parliament owing to want of opportunity (wh. Gladstonian Peers take very good case not to afford), may do useful service in the country during the Recess'. Concludes: 'I advise you strongly not to hold your annual meeting now'. N° de ref. de la librería
