1 Kensington Palace Mansions
3 Dear Fred,
5 Could you tell me if you or your wife have heard the result of Miss
and Dr. Jack’s meeting with Asquith & Grey? I went yesterday
7to see Sylvia Pankhurst at the East End, but she was out. I thought
8your wife’s speech fine at the reception to Miss Adams. I hope I
9shall be able to go to her reception at the Kingsway Hall next month.
11 Yours ever,
12 Olive
