Josephine Butler to Albert Rutson

Scope and Content

Typed copy letter. She is sending him 'our memorial for Mr Bryce's and Mrs Foster's signatures'; also a rough specimen of her tract. He can tell Macmillan that the subject is exciting general interest and that this article has been written at the request of the Vice Chancellor and Dons of Cambridge. Closes with cheerful news of 'Black Prince' who is 'growing handsomer every day and so conceited.'
