No address but 'Purity Department National Woman's Christian Temperance Union' headed paper

To say that Mr Maurice Gregory takes to her a letter from their Purity workers expressing their wish that she should remain their leader as in the past and to assure her that the National WCTU (Women's Christian Temperance Union) has taken no backward step in its position against regulated vice. Note by JB on the top to Miss Forsaith 'Please answer this briefly but lovingly for me. She stood up for me bravely from little woman'.
