Josephine Butler to 'dear Friend' [Miss Forsaith]

Scope and Content

Photocopy of letter. Written from Cornhill on Tweed.

She is enjoying the warmth and sunshine though one cannot call it heat yet. Feels very alone in the matter of companionship. She very much prefers a village like Cornhill and its pleasant surroundings to living at Galewood which is surrounded by woods, completely isolated and very silent. Cornhill is 'a busy self-important little village' with plenty of rural activities. Mrs Maclachlin, the Landlady, is a formidable dame, but truly good and kindhearted. She is a strict sabbatarian; the stillness is wonderful 'Not a dog may wag his tongue at me' on that day.
