Unknown to Barbara Leigh Bodichon

Scope and Content

Autograph letter, 1p. in a bold hand, from middle of a letter.

'I've just read Miss Smith's admirable paper on 'Woman and Work'. It ought to be circulated by the million and acted on -- It is the truth forcibly expressed & will assuredly do good. It is just what is needed -- Give her my kind remembrance if she remembers me -- & thank her for the pleasure I feel in seeing her the medium of such admirable instruction.'The poem of Manning to which I alluded I see from my note Bk was contained in Fisher's Drawing Room.'
