Scope and content

Lincoln’s Inn Hotel, London, W.C.—The early issue of a few copies of the letter in question was an accident.



Lincoln’s Inn Hotel, Lincoln’s Inn Fields and High Holborn, London, W.C.
13th Oct 1912 {1}

Dear Mr Lawrence

The letter in question was a private one addressed only to members of the WSPU & was not intended for publication.

My instructions were that it was to be so posted as not to reach the addresses earlier than Votes for Women was published. If a few copies were posted earlier than was intended it must have been by accident. It was certainly without my knowledge

Yours faithfully
E. Pankhurst


The letter-head features an illustration of the hotel.

{1} The first three figures of the year are printed.
