Letter from Wilfrid Scawen Blunt (Newbuildings Place, Southwater, [West] Sussex) to WSC saying that unfortunately [?John] Redmond will not be able to come to Sussex to meet WSC. Blunt wonders whether WSC would be "afraid" to meet Constance, Lady Lytton to hear her prison experiences [she was imprisoned under the name of Jane Wharton for her support of womens' suffrage and subjected to forcible feeding in a Liverpool prison], and adds that Lady Lytton is not "dangerous" having just finished her rest cure, but would like to discuss WSC's proposals for prison reform with him. If WSC agrees to meet Lady Lytton, Blunt will also invite Victor, [2nd] Lord Lytton. Signed manuscript.
