Scope and Content

Photocopy of letter. Written from 280 South Hill Park Road, Liverpool. She apologises for delay (due to illness) in answering her questions. Madame is welcome to make any use of the letters she writes to her. She is also sending her a brochure which she wrote some time ago and from it she will see that they are not altogether so happy in England as is sometimes supposed: 'there is much prejudice here to overcome'. Enclosed for her is a notice of their projected Magazine. [see account of this in previous letter of Apr 1869].
