Henri Minod to Miss Forsaith

Scope and Content

Photocopy of a letter. Written from Geneva (in French)

Thanks her for her letter of the 25th and for the copy of a quotation from a letter of Josephine Butler's in which she speaks of him in 'termes beaucoup trop elogieux'. He will arrange for Miss Forsaith to have the 'Bulletin'.

The loss of Madame Butler is to him like the loss of a good mother...irreplaceable. But they who are left behind must carry on the work and remember her words noted down at the time: 'When I am gone you will feel my soul marching on, marching on.'
