Josephine Butler to 'Dear Friend' [Miss Forsaith]

Scope and Content

Photocopy of a letter. Written from [Wooler, Northumberland]

Thanks her for her arrangement of the article on Louise Michel, and also for reading the 'Christian Commonwealth's article about the Welsh Revival. She hears about it on all sides and gets many enquiries from abroad, from Miss Delavaleye from Liege, as her uncle wants to put some account of it into the press of Belgium; also from old Hugo Tamm on the same subject; she also sends an account of it to her son Charles. Maurice Gregory has come under its influence. Mme. Pieczynska says they have accounts of it in the Swiss Press, not always good, and Miss Humbert begs an article for the 'Bien Public'. She describes a dream that Miss Ackroyd had of her and her three sons arched over with a rainbow which represents the Covenant.
