26Nov1880, Bright Talks Froudism

LONDON, November 26th, 1880.
—We dined at Spencer House. I sat by Mr. Bright, who was very pleasant. To my surprise he talked Froudism — i.e., how nations that could not win independence were better under somebody's thumb. I don't suppose he had the Balkan nationalities in his eye ! they have not yet had time to prove their capabilities.
