4 Dear Mrs Murray
6 I have just got a cable from London saying Mrs Pankhurst, & the
7Pethick Lawrences, are not receiving the rights of Political Prisoners
8as Jonneson & other political prisoners did. I am sending ^cabling^ the
9names of people here who protest against this treatment to England to
10be sent to the Government. Please collect all the names you can men &
11women. Would your brother James sign? Send the names to me at once
12please I want to send the cable as soon as possible. All names you can
13get. I’ve written to Dot & Lady Innes.
