Josephine Butler to Miss Priestman and Miss Estlin

Scope and Content

She gives as her considered opinion 'publish your manuscript'. She does not believe in Repeal being very near and therefore advises all friends to keep on as if they might still have a tough battle. Also there are requests for help from Paris and Italy in the war against the same evil, so that their pamphlet will have further use.
