LEANDO BROWN
43, Redoliffe Square,
South Kensington,
LON~DON, S.W.
20th. November, 1912.
My dear Miss James,
Because of the service you have
rendered womankind I take great pleasure in
having my American Agents mail you a copy of
my new play "Mrs. Raford, Humanist."
Miss Margaret Anglin writes that she
has nothing but unqualified praise for the play.
E. Desmond Deane of the Haymarket Theatre,
London, says:
"It is a powerful play, dealing
in a sympathetic manner with one
of the most vital questions of the
day both from a-moral and social
standpoint."
Mrs. Bennett, General Secretary of the National
Woman's Suffrage Association of America, writes:
"Your play stands alone among all
the plays that have been sent in
to the National Headquarters during
the last two years, as the one which
makes the strongest and soundest
appeal, and, moreover, it solves
better than any other the enormous
difficulty before all playwrights
who attempt to dramatise the woman
movement, in making the climax
dramatic instead of didactic."
Trusting the play will be of interest to you,
I am,
Most sirterely s      reciatively yours,
