Scope and Content

Written from St. Andrews. No year but refers to the Medical Congress in Brussels which took place 4-8 Sep 1899

Mr Stuart is convinced that 'it will not do for the Federation, as the Federation, to accept to go to the Brussels Congress'. At the same time they must work hard to get as many Abolitionists (doctors and lawyers to whom the invitations are limited strictly) as possible to go. She feels that if a majority of the Federation Committee vote that the Federation shall be officially represented at Brussels she will feel it incumbent on her to promote a strong international protest of women against that Congress. She therefore asks him to try to attend the Committee on the 6th.
