|CHAR 8/28/27||Letter from Joseph Chamberlain (Highbury, Moor Green, Birmingham [Warwickshire]) to WSC, thanking him for a copy of WSC's book "My African Journey". Chamberlain explains that he had not yet had time to read it but was looking forward to it as he enjoyed WSC's biography of Lord Randolph Churchill. He recalls admiring WSC's decision to visit Africa, as WSC was becoming Under-Secretary for the Colonies. He also remembers visiting East Africa himself, though at that time when Chamberlain was at the Colonial Office, East Africa was under the Foreign Office, and remembers seeing that there were a lot of problems to deal with.||15 Dec 1908|
