Let's Play "Connect the Dots": "Vast semi-religious, quasi-political associations..." (2)

R.B. Brett, Lord Esher

R.B. Brett, later to become Lord Esher, was another of the charter members of the Society of the Elect. His journal contains the following remarks after talking with Rhodes at Lord Rothschild's country house in February 1890:

"Came here last night. Cecil Rhodes, Arthur Balfour, Harcourts, Albert Grey, Alfred Lyttleton. A long talk with Rhodes today. He has vast ideas. Imperial notions. He seems disinterested. But he is very ruse and, I suspect, quite unscrupulous as to the means he employs." [Quigley, C., The Anglo-American Establishment, p. 38]
