Josephine Butler to Rhoda Butler

Scope and Content

Photocopy of letter. Written from Montreux

Encloses some Appenzell embroidery on two frocks for the Bazaar. Very bad weather; she describes one very bad thunderstorm when she visited a chalet and they only got back to the hotel late at night thanks to a kind porter who came in search of them.

'posted just as he landed at Albany'

Charles was taking up a mining job in Albany, a port in Western Australia, his letter dated 9 May.

For a week's stay at Montreux she paid 60 francs, approximately $2.7. She has met some most delightful dogs, something between Collies and St Bernards. She returns to Lausanne the next day.
