Millicent Garrett Fawcett to Ray Strachey

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter. Written from the American Colony, Jerusalem. Has had two telegrams lately from London announcing great success of the Suffrage Meeting at which Mr. Baldwin spoke. I had feared they were going to attempt to back a disfranchising clause to our bill on account of receipt of the dole. This could have lacked the support of the Labour Party and imperilled the chances of their Bill.
