|Date||22 Jan [c 1890-1900]|
Letter (undated) from James E. Thorold Rogers to [ ] Agnew written from Oxford regarding Washbourne West, a Fellow of Lincoln College Oxford, and his practice of employing 'faggot votes' by which he is "reputed to have 28 faggots to have voted 17 times at the last general election," [possibly that of 1892]. Thorold Rogers describes West as "a corrupt, lying and malignant Tory, an absolute son of Belial." The letter also makes reference to Punch magazine.
