Photocopy of part of a letter.
'Agnes McLaren writes to me from Rome' JB gives a summary of Agnes' letter. Agnes presented the Pope 'with a written Supplication in Italian, asking him to express his approval of the work of our Abolitionist Federation'. His reply to her and to all who co-operate with her was 'We impart from our heart the Apostolic Benediction'. When she showed this to the Rector of the Scotch College he told her to add on publication 'Rescript of Pope Pius X'
