Josephine Butler to the Priestmans

Scope and Content

Written from Wimbledon. Her sister Mrs Thomas and her nurse Constance both left about four weeks ago [see letters of 28 Jan, 3 & 5 Feb] she herself is still very weak and cannot read or write for more than half an hour at a time. Concerned about her sister, Mrs Smyttan, whose mind and memory have failed very much. Would like to have her to look after but not yet quite strong enough.
