She writes with grief and distress at the accusation contained in a Swiss paper of an outrage carried out by 20 British Soldiers in South Africa on a burgher's wife. Mrs Fawcett has asked her to take it up. She is very weak and in pain but will at least write to Lord Wolesley. Does her friend know that 'Mrs Amos and Mr Cope [both in vigilance societies] are sending out broadcast their 'criticism' of my book [Native Races and the War 1900]' They have got the addresses of all my Federation friends abroad and sent it to them, as well as widely to all English members. JB's comments: 'This criticism is a trifle. I have not even read it.' Mr Hugo Tamm (Sweden) writes to her so kindly he thought the Amos pamphlet 'Not good spirit'.
