Josephine Butler to 'Dear Friend' [Miss Forsaith]

Scope and Content

Photocopy. Written from Buckingham Palace Hotel. London. She refers to Miss Forsaith visiting her the day before suggesting 6 or 13 Mar.

'It was suggested at Committee that I should write to or see Cardinal Vaughan'. (For other correspondence with Cardinal Vaughan see letters dated 23 Dec 1893; 18 Jan 1895; 24 Jan 1895; Mar 1895.)

Asks whether there are English copies in print 'of the beautiful address of the Catholic bishops to the Pope.' She now feels sure that 'He is striving... to make us receive a most wonderful 1897 blessing and revelation and joy and power.'
