Letter to William Gladstone  (1876) 
by Sabine Baring-Gould
Containing a poem that Baring-Gould didn't believe was fit for publication, this letter was sent September 23, 1876 to his patron William Gladstone in agreement of outrage at the policies of Benjamin Disraeli.

Excuse a line to express the depth of gratitude I feel for your letter, pamphlet and speech on the Eastern Question. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and after Lord Beaconsfield’s outrage at Aylesbury I cannot contain myself from expressing my feelings.

I enclose some lines on the question somewhat too stinging for publication but true.
