Typed copy of a letter. Written from Caux sur Territet, Montreux, Switzerland
'Friends in England have been following - as I have done - with the keenest interest the 'battle of Guernsey'. The promoters of Regulation have been discouraged. An account of the 'Projet de Loi for the State Regulation of Vice' in Guernsey is given in the 'Dawn', May 1895 p 9.
Concerning a young Armenian lady doctor who came to the Colmar Conference (Sep 1895) and has since dedicated herself to their work.
'Dr Agnes McLaren has worked marvellously since Sep. She has seen the Pope [Leo XIII] twice in Rome ...' Her aim was to obtain an authoritative word of approval for their Cause from the Pontiff to use in Catholic countries. She also interviewed all the doctors of Rome. (See also letters of Mar 1895 Josephine Butler to Rhoda Butler, with a satisfactory reply from Cardinal Vaughan (quoted) to their appeal for support from the Pope.)
Finally two of their friends have been selected to the Grand Council of Geneva.
