LORD ATTLEE ON J. H. THOMAS SIR,—May I correct both

Lord Attlee and Mr. Blax- land? 'Charlie' Cr amp's given name was Conce- more; where it came from I do not know.

This, however, is not Mr. Blaxland's only mistake. E.g., he says that the Webbs did not even mention the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants in their History. This would be really remarkable, if it were true; but it is not. There are other errors; but I should like to confirm that his picture of J. H. Thomas as a personality is both vivid and, so far as my recollection goes, accurate.
