Autograph Letter Signed to 'My dear Ashworth', thanking him for Gladstone's 'Academic Sketch', and sending his photograph and his 'Public Speaking', with "some newspaper cuttings which will show you how the Spanish fleet was smashed in a running race. I was told, before the war, by a naval officer that we had the guns and the gunners. Schley & Dewey did up the Dons in quick time didn't they? The Army has been horribly mismanaged by the Government, but the soldiers got Santiago all the same. The fever is catching our poor fellows now ... it is a good move to pack off the Spanish army in their own merchantmen to Spain ... better than ... any invasion or further shelling of towns", 4 sides 8vo., Amherst, Mass., 30th July
