7Dear Mr Hodgson

9I hope you didn’t misunderstand about Mrs Pankhurst. I think her one
10of the strongest & cleverest women I ever met. And her physical
11courage in undergoing all she has gone has been splendid. But
12naturally when she is passionately war like, & I am all for peace we
13cannot have much in common.

15I enjoyed last night so much. What a sweet

17^sincere girl Miss Ehrlich is? Our Cape girls are so splendid, the hope
18of South Africa.^
