4 Dear Mr Henderson

6 I had no idea you would have any use to make of the answers when once
7the conference was over. The answers were of course private for the
8conference. As one would not wish a thing so hurriedly & in illness
9written down published.

11 I have sent it to my friend Mrs Brown to read, as she is working hard
12at the "Black Peril" matter & when it is done with will return it to
13you if you in any way need it. I feel it is important to make women
14take the right view of this matter. I know women who are simply mad
15with petty fear & rage on this subject.

17 Yours Faithfully

20 If I am better I am planning later to go for change to the Eastern
21Province & shall visit Alice, & I shall hope to have
22
23^a talk with you on this matter. Also on the subject of native women as
24nurses.^

Notation
No information can be found concerning where Henderson might have been intending to publish about the results of the 'so-called black peril' investigation, so it may never have appeared.
