Flora Annie Steel to the Writer's Club

Scope and Content

Letter, addressed to 'Dear Madam', written from Lucknow, [India ?], dated 23 Dec, no year, but reference to her position as Chairwoman in later correspondence dates it as 1897. Formal acceptance of 'the Committee's request' [that she be Chairwoman of the Club in 1898 ?], though the delay in replying may have made it necessary for them to ask someone else.
