Typed copy of letter. Written from Ragaz, Canton St Gall.
Finds age 'getting upon me rapidly now. Not yet feeling at all rested after the Geneva Conference [see note], though ten days away'. It was a wonderful Conference and she thinks that the Dreyfus case has helped the Society [see note]. 'The upholders of Justice in the Dreyfus flocked to us from all sides'. They now understand our abolitionist cause as never before'. It has also led to an entente between the freethinkers of France and the Protestant pastors. She comments on the Brussels (Med.) Conference which was such a success and of which Dr Fiaux gave them such an interesting account at Geneva [see note]
Refers to what she fears is the coming war against the Transvaal which she feels 'may cost England very dear in lives, in money and in honour' [See note]
Will probably stay in Switzerland the greater part of the winter. Asks her friend to post on this letter to the American ladies in India (Dr Bushnell and Mrs Andrew) [See note]
