Papers of David Urquhart : 1K - Correspondence

I K: THE LAW OF NATIONS: 1866-76.

D.U.'s plans for a Law of Nations were closely linked to his support for the Catholic Church. Therefore the division made by the original catalogue between this section and I L (which deals with the Vatican Council) is somewhat artificial as both contain correspondence from prominent Catholics which discusses the role of the Catholic Church and information about the Eastern Church and the Vatican Council. Correspondence with Catholic figures which discusses the Law of Nations is also to be found in D.U.'s correspondence relating to Catholic Social Reform organisations in I M.

For pamphlets re Law of Nations see: III 15.

D.U. and H.U's writing was similar so some AML copies attributed to D.U. in this part of the catalogue may have in fact been copied by H.U. who appears to have played an important role in her husband's work.
