Letter to Sir Ernest Nathaniel Bennett

 Collection — Folder: 1
Call Number: MS P665


Horatio William Bottomley (1860-1933) was a journalist, swindler and, at one time, a Member of Parliament in England. Among his many endeavors, in 1906 he founded the weekly journal, John Bull. In this typed letter on John Bull letterhead, he writes to Sir Ernest Nathaniel Bennett (1868-1947), also a Member of Parliament. Bottomley notes the enclosures he is sending Bennett: some copies of John Bull that list the clerical shareholders in brewery and allied companies and an advance copy of the current issue with corrections. The enclosures Bottomley mentions are not included with this letter in the collection at Spencer Research Library.
