Josephine Butler [written by Amelie Humbert ] to Mrs Tanner

Scope and Content

Written from Winchester. References to demonstration proposed by some of the Salvation Army 'that 500 mothers should bring the Petition which has ...over 200,000 signatures to Windsor Castle, so as to draw the Queen's attention to it'. JB desires to be among those mothers.

Administrative / Biographical History

Date: year uncertain but probably 1883. Refers to the projected visit of the sisters as their 'first visit' so a later date is hardly likely, as the Butlers moved to Winchester Nov 1882. Also in 1885 Mlle Humbert was not acting as her secretary and she was in 1883.
