Scope and Content

Postcard. Written from Wooler. Postmark Wooler, 29 Jun 1901

The book 'Government by Police [1879] 'is quite out of date now'. Thinks Miss Forsaith might advertise 'Hour before the Dawn' 'which is useful for all time'. Keeping a few copies back as some of her friends abroad like it.
