Josephine Butler to her friends [the Priestmans]

Scope and Content

Written from Wimbledon (dictated). Her sister Mrs Smyttan is in a bad way, very feeble and dependent and now homeless, 'the lease of her house at Richmond being out'. She is in lodgings near by. Do her friends know of a suitable woman who would look after her? It is a great relief to her to have put her book into the publisher's hands.
