Enclosing her recollections of JB.

The Recollections start with a description of a meeting of Jun 1873 in York of the Friends of Repeal. The Rev CS Collingwood announced that a meeting of medical men and police experts in Paris had just decided that regulation must be international to succeed; and JB had announced that she felt she was called to arouse opposition on the Continent.

The rest of the Recollection deals with JB's description of George Butler
