Anna H Shaw to Millicent Garrett Fawcett

Says the Republicans may discredit Wilson, and thereby the idea of the League, for party political reasons. Asks Mrs Fawcett to represent the Committee on Suffrage at the Executive meeting instead of her, or to arrange for some other British member to do so. Comments on the changes in life following the war and the difficulties in carrying out disinterested work. Typed, signed.
