Mrs Elizabeth Andrew to Henry J Wilson

Scope and Content

Written from British Consul, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Asking him if he has the copy, as written out by Katharine Bushnell of the evidence concerning her trip to the hill station in the vicinity of Murree last summer. If so they would be glad if they could have the original, keeping a copy for himself if he wished. She would greatly like to meet her trusted English friends again amongst whom she counts him and Mrs Wilson, but they are both still so worn and exhausted that they feel they must stay on longer in Switzerland to recuperate. In their last year in India they noted especially the interest among the missionaries. Also of interest a visit to a newly established Lock Hospital at Belgium. Glad to hear of his attitude to the Transvaal War. 'We have suffered unspeakably on account of it'.

Administrative / Biographical History

Mrs Elizabeth Andrew with Dr Bushnell went to India in the winter of 1891-1892 to enquire into the State run brothels kept for the Army.

'It has been a source of real cheer to us both to see an account of some of your doings in regard to the Transvaal War ... Thank God that your eyes have not been blinded!' An expression of relief that Wilson was in the anti-Boer war camp, so different from the unexpected views publicised by JB in her book 'Native races and the War'
