Josephine Butler to 'Dear Friend' [Miss Priestman]

Scope and Content

Written from Edensor, Derbyshire.

Asks Priestman to defer the exact date of the meeting of the Ladies' National Association until she knows the exact date of the Michaelmas holidays as the family have been asked to stay the first week of Oct in Northampton. Thinks it would be a great mistake to invite Mr Stansfeld to the Ladies' National Association meeting
