87 Clement’s Inn, W.C.—Discusses arrangements in connection with the separation of the Pethick-Lawrences from the WSPU.



87 Clements Inn | W.C

Dear Mrs P

1) In reference to th trustee to cover our liability I saw Mr Petre yest[erda]y of Messrs Blount Lynch & Petre 48 Albemarle Street & ascertained tht he would be will[in]g to act as trustee & to draw up the deed. Do you agree to his appointment?

2). The Womans Press a/c at the present time is in my name and is operated on by my signature. {1} I propose at an early date to pay out of it a cheque to cover the liability of th Womans Press to Vote† for Women for papers already received & then to hand over the balance of the money to you or to someone you appoint & then to close the a/c. {1} Will you please let me know to whom I am to hand over th balance.

3) With regard to the statement about separation which is to appear in Votes for Women this week, a suggestion was made to me by the editorial staff tht following the usual course w regard to important articles etc, advanced proofs should be sent to the press. This I refused to do. It wd be of course contrary to our agreement that th statement was first to be published in Votes for Women. I am sure you will agree w me that this implies that the statement should not be made public anywhere else until after it has appeared in our paper.
