Written from Clifton. Date Friday [Nov 26 1897]
Says the ladies there object to the last sentence of her letter to Miss Willard, beginning 'I have had much difficulty' [Refers to disputes with Lady Henry Somerset and Miss Willard] She has therefore decided to omit it in any published copy but to let her written letter to Miss Willard go as it is. Mr and Mrs Spence Watson have been 'called away to their son who is said to be dying'. She has written to the American Ladies [then engaged on a lecture tour of the UK] suggesting a postponement of their visit to Newcastle.
