This unusual British politician and writer spurned his upper class upbringing and became the first to expound the ideas of Karl Marx in England; he founded the country's first socialist political party, the Social Democratic Federation, in 1881, and later the National Socialist Party. Good content ALS, 2pp (1st and 4th leaves), 5" X 8", Westminster, England, 1884 April 2. Addressed to "My dear Sir." Very good. On letterhead of "The Democratic Federation," Hyndman thanks the unnamed recipient "for your contributions which no doubt we shall be able to make use of advantageously." He continues: "I am very glad to hear you are getting 'enthused' on Socialism. It is to my mind the only chance of our living to be something better than this miserable cut-throat society. The Bradlaugh Dilute has given us a great lift." Charles Bradlaugh (1833-91) was a controversial British politician and atheist who refused to take the oath of office (which assumed Christianity) but refused to forfeit his seat in Parliament. Hyndman letters are rather scarce, especially from this seminal period in his life. Bookseller Inventory # 40516
