Mrs. M. Sanger-Slee,
2424, Wyoming Avenue,
Washington. D.C.
U.S.A.

9th. February 1932.

Dearest Margaret,

We have received this morning from Dr. Elkan (of Hamburg) copies of his “Phantom” paper, one of which I enclose and also a copy of his letter. Please note what he says about the superiority of a Margaret Sanger Conference, compared with a Committee Conference where there are so many ideas striving to be supreme.

I enclose also a letter from Harold Cox, from which you will see he has very much appreciated your story.

I think you will be glad to know that Canon Dearmer is allowing us to reprint his sermon and he himself has added a very strong footnote about the Roman Catholics. By the way, I am enclosing an extract from a recent letter to us in which he protests against the Roman Catholic Church being referred to as the “Catholic Church” by the Editor of one of our B.C. publications.

The Johannesburg Birth Control Clinic (under the auspices of the Race Welfare Society) has materialized! We had a letter from our correspondent yesterday dated January 20th., in which she says:--“You will be interested to hear that our Johannesburg Birth Control Clinic opens next week!” and she encloses a copy of their propagandist leaflet, which is really the reprint of a leaflet written originally for the Workers’ Birth Control Group here and now published by the National Birth Control Association whose permission has been obtained for the reprint.

Still struggling on dear Margaret tho’ money is tighter than ever!

Love
Edith
