Written possibly from Clarens.
Enclosed is a letter from Josephine Butler to Miss Forsaith.
'These appeals I am getting every week from Australia go to my heart'. (For previous correspondence on this subject see letters dated: 26 Jul 1895 Josephine Butler to Miss Mary Priestman; 10 Aug 1895 Josephine Butler to Miss Mary Priestman; 20 Aug 1895 Miss Forsaith to Mr Edmondson; and article in 'Sentinel' Sep 1895 p 12
'... get the Committee to buy some of that paper of mine published at the Women's Christian Temperance Union office at the Memorial Hall and post it to Australia'
In her letter to Miss Forsaith, Josephine stresses that statistics and hygiene need supplementing 'by something personal addressed to themselves as opponents of a near and threatening evil'.
'... The Publishing people of Miss Willard and Lady Henry at the Memorial Hall published a large and inexpensive Edition of 'Sursum Corda' a thing I wrote long ago or rather spoke'. This was based on a speech delivered by Josephine Butler at the annual meeting of the Ladies' National Association in 1871.
'There is to be a Medical Congress in St Petersburg soon, in which our question is included'. This was due to be held on 20 Feb 1896. (See Rough Record 810 20 Feb 1896)
