REPORT TO MARGARET SANGER. 11th November 1930

  1. A second bundle of papers has been posted to Dr. Stone via Dr. A Crawford, St. Clair Street, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, a friend of Dr. Haire’s. A bundle of copies of German papers is going today, the originals remaining in London.
  2. Enclosed a few notes about Dr. George Drysdale.
  3. Marjorie Martin returns to Geneva tomorrow. It has been most useful having her in London and I do think Dr. Stone will receive everything in order.
Dearest Margaret,

Mrs. Delafield’s letter not very encouraging! In a way I agree with her that we English birth controllers ought to find her a job but we have so many capable creatures like Mary Breed & Olive Johnson out of work. I felt that if you in New York had helped for 3 or 6 months we ought to find enough friends here. The progress here is amazing one can feel the movement going a head + we could do with dozens of Kitty’s for going into the slums if we had the money to keep them going--

Gerda’s meeting last Thursday was very good & tho’ Gerda did not raise the money she wanted to do yet it created great interest and will do an immense deal of good-- It was a glorious day & her grounds & the house looked lovely & made everyone happy. Next year 1931 will the jubilee of B.C. work in Holland. If we can fix up a mtg. or a small 2 days Conf. with supporters in Holland--would you come over as International President? It wd. keep the ball rolling & we wd. do it inexpensively cost about £250 or about 1250 #. It wd be good & we shd see YOU--


Love from Edith.
