M Bisdee to Miss Strachey

Scope and Content

Reports on 'the somewhat extraordinary ending to the meeting at HO of last Thursday'. Whole audience except Miss Wren and one other 'rose like one man and left the house', as protest at Miss Bompas speech, perhaps because of suspicion of risk of socialism in the movement; one lady who had raised this point earlier wrote later to apologise and confess her ignorance and wish to learn more. 'From this may we hope that others may be sobering down with a little contrition'.
