Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correpondent saying she has booked in the date “for the visit to Leicester. As I speak without notes or M.S. it is well to call it ‘a talk’.

Thank you very much for your kind invitation, I accept it with pleasure...”, 2 sides 8vo., 1h Montagu Mansions, Portman Square headed paper, re-addressed from 110 High Street, Manchester, 4th December
