Reading Experience:

15 March 1880: 'I read in this morning's Times that Merthyr [Guest, son by her first marriage] has accepted the requisition of the electors to come forward for his native town of Merthyr-Tydvil as a Liberal [...] There cannot be better men or truer, according to their convictions, than these my belongings. For myself I am different to them all. I hold on to my own Whig principles in domestic policy; but I go with the Conservatives in their eastern and other foreign policy.'
