Josephine Butler to Stanley Butler

Scope and Content

Photocopy of letter. Written from St Beatenburg

Tells him how much she appreciates the expression of his sympathy with and understanding of the work she still does, to old age, though she is of course rather isolated in it now. She has had the 'Letter' (printed) about women's vagaries and will send it soon. Yesterday was a beautiful day after ten days of rain and mist and she went on a short expedition with Uncle Tell and Aunt Hatty to a place above the woods and villages giving them a glorious view of the Bernese range. At this point they found a chalet which the owner wanted to let next summer and she thought how wonderful if Stanley and his family and herself could take it. She could afford it for two months.
