Scope and Content

Written from Hamburg. She was so tired they stopped at Hamburg for the day, travelling to Brussels by the night train. They had a successful visit to Malmo with a very crowded meeting; it was for women but men crowded in as well and a great number joined the Federation. The stewardess on the ship asked if someone would explain to her what it was all about, so Miss Wellhaaven, daughter of a Norwegian Poet, stood up and made a speech for her. After that she brewed some 'midnight tea' for the party.
