Description

Letter from Sir Charles Dilke to Duncombe regarding Percy Jackson.

Inscription

[printed] 76, Sloane Street. S.W.

9 am - 3 [indec]

My dear Duncombe,

Will you let Percy Jackson know the address he writes for - I have answered his note and give him your address.

Yours very truly,
Charles W. Dilke

Notes

- Alan Cole. Dilke was the son of Sir Charles Dilke, 1st Baronet. He was educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, where he was President of the Cambridge Union Society. His second wife was the author, art historian, feminist and trade unionist Emilia, Lady Dilke.
Dilke became Liberal Member of Parliament for Chelsea in 1868, a seat he held until 1885.
In 1871, he caused controversy when he criticized the British Monarchy and argued that the United Kingdom should adopt a republican form of government; public criticism made Dilke recant this position.
