05Apr1867, Uncle Wm. on Suffrage

LONDON, April 5th, 1867.
Uncle W. . . . will unmake and remake the Bill, . . . letting the Conservatives get the credit of it ! It is refreshing to hear that the good country Tories are enraged with Dizzy, and don't take kindly to their new war-cry of Household Suffrage. "The Liberals have a deal of hypocrisy, ultra-Toryism, and self-seeking among them," said Uncle W., "or they wouldn't be such faint friends to their cause, such cowards upon the question, and so taken up with little personal alarms and affronts."
