Scope and Content

Original letter is missing. Extract from letter. 'I believe there is a good future for our cause. Old Europe will have to fight many a difficult battle in itself, and we must be ready to go and join the ranks of our friends heartily when the fighting come to be more directly against the 'vested interest' of brothel keepers, and all their supporters, including dissolute men, in every city, of the highest rank and authority as well as the lowest'.
