Signature: "John Morley/January 28.1906.", 5x2½. British author, journalist and statesman John Morley (1838-1923) was editor of the Fortnightly Review from 1867 to 1882 and of the Pall Mall Gazette from 1880 to 1883. He entered the House of Commons as a Liberal in 1883. He was Chief Secretary for Ireland (1892-1895) and Secretary of State for Ireland (1905-1910). Morley was known for his staunch opposition to government intervention in the economy, alienating labor with his opposition to an 8-hour work day. He opposed British imperialism in principle, partly because it was too expensive, but took strong measures against Indians opposed to British rule. He declared that the Covenant of the League of Nations was "not worth the paper it was printed on." Morley was ennobled as Viscount Morley in 1908. Left edge lightly frayed. Irregularly cut edges. Lightly toned around edges. Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
