JAMES BRYCE, 1st VISCOUNT BRYCE
Letter arranging a meeting on "the copyright question"
Autograph Letter signed: "J Bryce", 3 pages (integral leaf), 4½x7 folded, 9x7 open flat. 115 East 25th Street, December 28, no year. To "My dear Sir", in full: "It will give me great pleasure to meet any of your friends that are interested in the copyright question tomorrow, Saturday evening if you think that my doing so can be of any use. (I add this not that it will not be a pleasure to me to come in any case, but that I should be very sorry for you to put yourself out on my account.) Will you kindly let me know at what hour to come to you? It will be a great delight to me to hear what you and your friends think in this matter, for those who care about it in England do not seem to understand precisely to position of matters, and of opinion, here. Believe me very truly yours". James Bryce (1838-1922), elevated to 1st Viscount Bryce in 1914, was a British scholar, jurist and politician. A Liberal Member of Parliament from 1880 to 1907, he held several important governmental posts, including Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, President of the Board of Trade, Chief Secretary for Ireland, and chairman of a royal commission on secondary education. Bryce, who wrote a landmark study, The American Commonwealth (1888), was British Ambassador to the US from 1907 to 1913. During World War I, the Bryce Commission documented alleged German atrocities in Belgium, and Viscount Bryce was outspoken on the Armenian genocide. After the war he served on the International Court and advocated for the League of Nations. He opposed women's suffrage. Toned. Multiple mailing folds. Unknown stains at edges. Minor ink smears (legible). Otherwise, fine condition.
