Josephine Butler to her dear friends (the Priestmans)

Scope and Content

Written from Mon Repos, Serrieres, Neuchatel. She had visited Adela (a niece up in the mountains) who is so weak she cannot raise her head without help, but she is well looked after. She herself is comfortably lodged and with the whole panorama of the Alps to be seen from the Balcony. She is able to do some work in connection with the writings her husband left. She is about to write a full account of the case of M. Humbert to Mr Stuart.
