This selection of extracts (written between 1880 and 1895) from the unpublished journals of Lewis Harcourt is designed as a companion volume to Harcourt and Son, the political biography of the Victorian statesman Sir William Harcourt published in 2004 (FDUP). Lewis Harcourt was the constant companion and confidential secretary of his father, who, during the period covered by these journals, was home secretary and chancellor of the exchequer in the last three of Gladstone's four Liberal governments. The journals provide an insider's view of the party politics of the period, since Lewis Harcourt was closely acquainted with all his father's colleagues, including John Morley, Joseph Chamberlain, Charles Dilke, and Gladstone himself.
