Overview

The political journal of John Wodehouse, first Earl of Kimberley (1862-1902) is one of the finest political diaries of the last half of the nineteenth century.

The Kimberley Journal is replete with humorous anecdotes, information regarding policy development, and acute observations about politicians and political situations.
