Mrs Elizabeth Andrew to 'My dear friend' [Miss Forsaith]

Scope and Content

Written from 17 Park Circus Place, Glasgow.

Asking her to secure a copy of the latest World's WCTU [Women's Christian Temperance Union] Report to be sent by mail to Mrs Leavitt, Boston. They have had difficulty in getting a copy (it almost seems they are preventing its circulation). We are sending her their leaflet on the 'lowering of WCTU standards. Glad to hear that JB's little book 'Prophets and Prophetesses' is being brought out in book form. Gives directions about the distribution of their book 'The Queen's Daughters' 12,000 are to be sent to Miss Forsaith on completion and out of these 1,000 are to be sent on immediately to Mr Samuel Cooke who will himself see to their distribution. They have had good meetings since they last wrote, but she has suffered from a heavy cloud of oppression. The next day they return to Southport and later go on to Manchester.
