Alix von Cotta to Nelly

Scope and Content

Cotta writing from Berlin. Thanks for letter and parcel, which contained a copy of Sargent's portrait of Penelope; on the whole she is very pleased with it. She has just lost a very dear and faithful friend in Dr. Dettweiler. Refers to the International Council of Women Congress held at Berlin in Jun of that year 'On the whole I am not exactly an enthusiast for the Women-Rights-Movement' but she must take a modest part in it. Saw a first-rate performance of 'Patience' done by amateurs.
