Photocopy letter. Written from St Beatenberg
Reports that she had felt better in the last few weeks. Says how delighted she is with her grandson Bob's letters to her '...the spelling especially; so glad that no one corrects them.' Has had a kind note from Stuart who was just off on a cruise with Mr Colman in his yacht.
'I hardly think that Lord Salisbury and Chamberlain will pull together long' and comments on the situation concerning the Boers. She notes that a member of the Afrikander-Bund has just brought in a Repeal bill in the Cape Parliament to repeal the Contagious Diseases Acts in South Africa. Asks if he has got the 'Dawn' with her notice of the Colmar conference. Thinks that many women now are running off the rails in the great 'new woman' movement, so much so that she 'felt moved to write a little article castigating them with mild severity'.
