Copy of letter. Written from Ewart, Northumberland.
Says she writes with difficulty as the fall she had developed later complications with a great deal of pain. She has had to write to the Congress of Women Workers to say she could not give the paper they asked her for and she has proposed dear Mrs Wilson in her place. Explains that she will have to stand up against Mme Bieber-Boehm [see letters of 28 Sep 1898 and 22 Apr and 14 Jun 1899] who is an enemy to the Federation principles though she may uphold theoretically the need of an equal standard of morality. Secondly, she underlines her distrust which is confirmed by a letter from Minod who says that Berenger and his men 'are going to London to affirm (with government authority) that the official houses of debauchery are a guarantee against the White Slave Traffic, because they (the houses) only receive women who go there of their own free will'.
