4to, 4 pp. Sixty-six lines of text. Clear and complete. Fair, on grubby and lightly-worn paper. At the time of writing Ormsby-Gore was still a commoner, sitting in the House of Commons as Member for Denbigh. Headed 'Private'. Gore considers that 'both sides in politics have been doing their best to confuse the issue'. He begins by stating his position: 'The broad ground on which I stand is that a Liberal Government cannot, either on grounds of policy or of principle, refuse the demand of the Welsh Representatives for the Disestablishment of the Church in Wales. As to this you will disagree with me. But at any rate I cannot complain of their Disestablishing the Church in Wales, and I take it for granted that some measure of Disendowment, i.e. tithes, will always accompany Disestablishment everywhere.' He suggests three 'amendments of the existing Bill', before the last of which is the following: 'I am no expert in drafting, but I do not know why there should be any difficulty in drafting such a clause as this in the proper legal terms.' He discusses, with reference to Lloyd George's opinion, future difficulty in passing the bill. 'As it is both sides appear to me to have been occupied disastrously in saying, on the one side, we will pass the Bill as it stands, and on the other, we will reject the whole Bill. Those who think with me are paralyzed so long as this attitude continues.' He concludes by agreeing with Ormsby-Gore about 'the dangers of the future from the Ecclesiastical point of view'.
