My very dear friend.
I delayed answering your delightful letter until I could use my hurt hand. It is not quite itself yet; but I think like the rest of me it will soon be well.
The time has been a difficult one in some ways; but the compensations were many, and in the Hospital I had solitary hours of great happiness. Often and often I have thought of our strenuous days in the women’s movement.
I say sometimes, one of its chief achi[e]vements and joys was the discovery of woman by woman.
I was grieved to hear that you were laid aside during the Fair-time. I do hope the rest has restored you.
We are having terribly hard times here[. ]Two young men “mad with hunger” broke windows last week to get imprisonment. I fear things are not much better in England. Great changes, I be-lieve are impending
I must write no more. Thank you, dear friend a thousand times for your love and thought of me
I hope still to see you and my other dear friends of the League next year
With affectionate and grateful memories to your husband and true love to yourself
