08Mar1880, Owdacious Flings at the Opposition

LONDON, March 8th-14th, 1880.
F. turned up from the House in the small hours, with the thunderclap news of a DISSOLUTION!...

We dined Wednesday at D. House, where were Frank and Lou, and Cavendish looking rather ill and tired with a cold. His address to N. E. Lancashire, which he is going to fight, quite excellent, and a famous contrast to a sort of Peer's Address which Dizzy has put forth in the shape of a letter to the D. of Marlboro'. It's such a piece of bombast and Owdacious yet mysterious flings at the Opposition, that it will be worth thousands of pounds to the Liberals as a bone to be gnawed.
