Josephine Butler to Miss Forsaith

Scope and Content

Letter to be passed on to Mr Stuart. To say that she has paid Pewtress' bill (£13. odd) and that she does not wish the Committee to repay her. The gift from Miss Peckover has helped her greatly to pay Pewtress and the 'Storm Bell' printer etc. Only got about £2.10 of subscriptions but she has some very encouraging letters about it. Thinks Victor Horsley's last plot is dangerous and Mr Stuart and Mr Wilson think it will fan the flame of the Regulationists' demands. She has received a touching letter from Madame Dreyfus 'in reply to the one I wrote her'

Administrative / Biographical History
