Prison letter from Louisa Garrett Anderson to Elizabeth Garrett Anderson. Written from Holloway Prison. Friday March 29. As before, written in ink on an official prison letter form, with the printed section of the letter crossed through.
It was v comforting to have yr letter today. I hope that you are better. Your other letter distressed me very much. I am due to come out on the 9th - at least that is the earliest day on which my sentence can terminate. It would be nice to come to you that afternoon by the 3.25 train. I must go home first and attend to business letters and see how my household is getting on. You will not be in London then and neither will Alan because it will be the Easter holiday so that of course you mustn't come to meet me - besides probably it will be quite early in the morning. The A Hall meeting seems to have been magnificent y'day. We sent £100 from here. It is difficult to say whether the defeat of the Concil(iation) Bill is all loss. We will be blamed for it, but the result is exactly what CP [Christabel Pankhurst] predicted when the Govt. Reform Bill was announced.
I am quite well only weary - but still quite well. All my love - so much of it.
