Josephine Butler to Sir G Newman

Scope and Content

Written from Galewood, Nr Wooler, Northumberland

Saying she had been very ill the last eight months and was still weak, but she has such deep sympathy with the questions on which he writes to her that she hopes to write in a day or two. She refers to the responsibilities of the nation [the working of the CD Acts in the British Empire] 'which occupy my thoughts greatly'
