Letter to Emily Wilding Davison in prison from her mother, Margaret Davison. Longhorsley. Feb 2nd 1912. My dear daughter, I was so glad to get your nice long letter giving an idea how you spend the day. I am glad you have plenty of exercise and I suppose it will be mostly outside. It will be cheery to meet and talk with the other suffragettes. One feel a bit sorry they are leaving soon. Perhaps there might some more be sent in. I see by Mrs Pankhurst speeches they mean more war. I suppose it will be when Parliament meets. I am glad you got the Package. I was very doubtful if you would. I shall try another one next week. When do the lawyers make the appeal. I hope soon and I wish you all good luck. Thanks for all your good wish. I know how heartly you send them. I had nice letter from Let[itia] with a small enclosure and a pair of gloves from Marie and Gerald. I had a long PC (postcard) from Connie and Florie. It appears F is not coming to England until later on in the year. The cold has been and is get most intense both my doors blocked up both inside and out right up the stairs. I have never seen anything like the snow. Even drifted through the windows the sight made one shiver. The country all round is white and very deep in some places. I am glad you are able to get such interesting books. They will help the time to pass. I never have time to read anything but the weekly papers. Yesterday there was some skating on here. When Mrs Good fell and has broken her leg. So we wont see her for sometime to come. How lovely to be able to get those Baths. I know that will be a real pleasure to you. Also the hot water bottle. One needs them in this weather. With oceans of love from Mother.
