Written from Ewart, Northumberland.
Encloses a cheque sent by a hitherto unknown friend specially to help the 'Storm Bell' and if Mrs Tanner agrees she will send it to her bank as a reserve fund for printing. Reports that the demand for the 'Storm Bell' continues and from unlikely places like Gibraltar for officers of the garrison. 'I am surprised that educated people seems to care for such an elementary paper'. Distressed to hear of the serious illness of Sir James Stansfeld. Speaks of the latest assault of their enemy: 'the attempt of Dr Victor Horsley to create a scare among women, Horsley must be mad'. Has received a grateful letter from Mme Dreyfus from Paris in reply to me.
