1st December 1931

Mrs. M. Sanger-Slee,

My dear Margaret

Poor old Hankins and his little grouses! However, you dealt very well and faithfully with him. Thanks very much for the three copies received. You have two wonderful admirers, one in Warsaw, Dr Rubinraut, as you will see from the copy of his letter, and Madam Popprova in Czecho-Slovakia. I am sending them a copy each of your book, they having already received “Motherhood in Bondage. as they will make good use of it in making your work known in other countries.

Gerda went to Cannes last week to stay with Madam Nohowel. We expect her back tomorrow.

Dr. Majima has sent us two of his books in Japanese and apparently the title of one is “Mothers, be clever!” Principles and Methods of Birth Control.”

Do you get the “New Generation” every month? As if not I must send you a copy as we are subscribing a few notes every month on the chief events that come to our notice. I believe the paper is doing none too well and I wonder whether you would think it worth while for us to make some arrangement with the paper for supplying more news and some articles from our point of view. Before long we must at least have a quarterly paper which we can send all over the world.

I expect Janet Chance has send you a copy of her book “The Cost of English Morals.” On next Monday we have arranged a meeting for her to speak on why she wrote it.

In Berlin a new information bureau has been started and the secretary, a very charming, capable, young woman, has just been visiting London. Her name is Erica Gluck, and she is a friend of Naomi Mitchison, with whom she stayed in London.

Dr. Leunbach has also been in London, brought over by Marie Stopes to lecture on the Grafenburg ring. Marjorie Martin has also been here and is doing a useful piece of work by filing a list of doctors in Switzerland who give birth control advice.

In spite of all your interest in New York, I do hope you are planning to be in Europe and perhaps Asia at least three months next year as there is so much you could just bring to fruition in Europe

What about your marriage Advice Bureau wh. Was referred to in the B.C. Review?

How are you dear one? Have you any world plans for next year-

Warm love from
