Copy of a letter. Addressed to a lady in Leeds. Point of the letter is to draw the bonds more closely between the central executive of the Ladies National Association and all the local women's committees or associations over the kingdom eg it would be a great help to central committee if each local secretary reported committee activities. Gives several points on which information may be useful to the local committee. Their first great effort is to be a great demonstration in the Free Trade Hall, Manchester.
