The letters express opinions on whether ASRS sponsored Members of Parliament should sign the constitution of the Labour Party. They show substantial support for R Bell and, indeed, for the stand taken by Osborne.
MSS.127/AS/OC/3/10/1-120 (Sep-Oct 1906) is an original bundle: "This is the bundle of Documents marked "A" referred to in the Affidavit of the Defendants as to Documents herein". It is not clear whether this bundle was collected for the first or second writ taken out by Osborne, but the existence of a separate, different bundle marked "A", which relates to the second writ, would seem to indicate that this bundle relates to the first. It is not the "rather formidable book which is bound in white, and which is described as "Minutes, Decisions, Correspondence, etc."" (printed transcript of proceedings, 20 Jul 1908): that book was bound after the Court of Appeal's proceedings in MSS.127/AS/OC/7/LE/2/1; some of the original correspondence is in MSS.127/AS/OC/3/12. The papers have been arranged in chronological order; the significance of the numbering has not been established.
MSS.127/AS/OC/3/10/121-232 is the second half of an original large bundle, Nov 1906-Jan 1907.
