Josephine Butler to Mrs Wilson

Scope and Content

Written from Liverpool. Dated Sunday. Thanks for letter that did her more good than she can say. Complains how hard it is to get speakers. Encouraging reports from the Continent. Gives news of Pressense, Pere Hyacinthe, Humbert, Nathan. Notes: 'But I am going to press him [Pressense] for Sheffield'. Two public meetings were arranged for 15 and 16 Nov and great efforts were made in the weeks before to get good speakers. Hence Josephine Butler's disappointment at 52 refusals already. Conference and Public Meeting, Albert Hall, Sheffield Northern Counties League. (Rough Record Nov 1875 no 309)
