Mrs Elizabeth Malleson to Mr Wilson

Scope and Content

Written from Camp Cottage, Wimbledon Common, SW. Most grieved that the note sent to him after their Committee meeting should have been at all wanting in cordiality; it certainly did not express the feeling and intention of the Committee. The only thing that the Committee really wanted to know was the geographical area of the League proposed to act in and that there should be a full interchange of information. Very grieved she has not written this before but has been incessantly occupied ...giving up one house at Littlehampton and adding to the London house. Thanks for his letter of advice about an Agent.
