Josephine Butler to her friend Miss Forsaith

Scope and Content

Written from [Ewart, Northumberland]. Date end of Jan 1898 because it mentions 'Storm Bell' first issue which appeared Jan 1898

She thanks her for the heaps of old rubbish she sent her among which there are 'untold treasures'. She does however miss one pamphlet called 'Opinions of eminent persons' compiled by the ex Secretary of the Society. Her printer is shrieking for some short spicy paragraphs to fill up little spaces in the Storm Bell and she thinks this will fill the bill.
