Scope and Content

Refers to: Sixsmith's letter discussing the labour troubles in Lancashire; the international labour movement, which he sees as a brotherhood, undivided by geography; and the labour struggles in America. He is glad of Sixsmith's interest in "the great cause" but stresses that the cause is much wider than that covered by the term "labour". He thanks Sixsmith for his part in the invitation to England, but regrets that he cannot visit due to his restricted finances.
