Josephine Butler to Rhoda Butler

Scope and Content

Photocopy letter. Written in England, place not given.

Thanks for woollen scarf, especially since it has suddenly turned cold. She is going to Wimbledon (to George and Mia) for a day or two and then to Mr Watts' place in Surrey to be painted, and Mia is accompanying her. It would have pleased her husband, as he admired Watts greatly as a draughtsman. Rhoda's mother is working hard over the partitioning of Aunty Fanny's things (Mrs Smyttan, Josephine's sister who had recently died after a long illness).

'left a little present to you [Rhoda], Constance and Ruth'. Josephine's nieces and daughters of Emily by her 2nd husband Jasper Bolton.
