Britain and the Olympic Games

The Times (2 august 1912) extract

Extract of the letter published in The Times :

« I am most keen to do anything which will help to put the flag on top at Berlin... I propose to follow up my first letter in The Times by a second one presently, appealing for funds on a large scale. We want a central fund of £25,000 carefully and economically administered... I think that for the last three months we should have the best professional that money could buy. Then the Colonies should be approached and also the foreign Olympic authorities on the subject of a British Empire team. Finally, a great effort should be made to let nothing go by default. »
