Written from 80 Rodney Street, Liverpool
He has many letters from Josephine Butler revealing the loftiness and beauty of her mind and her absolute trust in God. He recalls a dinner at her home where he met FW Newman and was profoundly impressed by her intellectual versatility. James Stuart, Augustine Birrell and the Revs. Ginsberg and Lundie were also present. Thinks most of the letters too private and domestic to admit of publication.
