Josephine Butler to Miss Forsaith

Scope and Content

Postcard. Written from Wooler, Northumberland.

Forgot when she wrote that as both men and women will be coming to the Vigilance Conference [White Slave Traffic Conference, 21-23 Jun] invitations to attend Abolitionist meeting would be extended to all alike. Miss Humbert tells her that Committee has been formed in Switzerland to appoint a lady delegate from each Canton; 'for those ladies have such a large knowledge of the spiriting away of poor Swiss girls'
