She would like her to send copies of some of the letters she receives from Roman Catholic prelates to Dr Fournier to show him that his assertion that all Abolitionists are Protestants is wrong: (3) and second edition of her little work on St Agnes is now published by the Editor of the 'Christian Commonwealth'

[See letter of 3 Jul 1902 JB to Miss Forsaith] so will she speak of it.
