Reading Experience:

18 November 1884: 'Ivor [son] went to attend a Conservative meeting summoned by Lord Salisbury to settle to new programme [for the Franchise Bill], invited by Gladstone's overtures of the previous night. I very much feared the Tories would continue obstinate, but, by the papers I have since seen, it would appear that there are hopes of their listening to reason. It is so odd that I should care about this.'
