Written from St Beatenburg
Glad that Mary and her sisters are coming to the Jura for a holiday. Tells her not to be dismayed about the defection of certain groups of women and that they should on no account try to hush it up; suggests that they can be put right again by good men (not women). Agnes McLaren has been doing wonderful work in Paris. Josephine Butler's sister, Mrs Meuricoffre, has arrived at last for a fortnight's stay.
