Description
Collection contains correspondence by Frances Power Cobbe to an unnamed female recipient, accompanying a parcel of books and leaflets and outlining their terms of sale. Written in purple-blue ink on the letterhead of the Victoria Street Society for the Protection of Animals From Vivisection United with the International Association for the Total Suppression of Vivisection, 1, Victoria Street, London, S.W.. In answer to "Miss Bradley's request", Cobbe is sending six copies of the Society's latest publication, "The Clergy and Vivisection" (written by Mark Thornhill, although he is not mentioned by name in the letter), together with a number of other promotional leaflets. The terms of sale are laid down: "The price of the Clergy ... is 1/6 a copy - but bound copies to be had for 2/-. ... Should [you?] require any more copies please order them not from us but direct through Hatchard the publoisher." The letter ends by exhorting the recipient "to assit Miss Bradley effectively in her arduous task."
