Josephine Butler to 'Dear Friend' [ Albert Rutson]

Scope and Content

Two typed copies of a letter [and one partial copy]. She sends him a few letters about Miss Davies; her sympathies are with her since she knows 'that she is depressed about the possible failure of her College'. Thinks her aims too big and that she should start in a small way. Men are not sympathetic to such women. Another such one was Miss Becker. Such women have never been loved. Does not wish to see Mr Harrison or Godfrey Lushington while she is so weak.
