Scope and Contents
Letter from Sir John Simon (57 Kensington Court [London]) to WSC concerning the case of Percy Macdonald ("Peter Pan") who had been sentenced to six months imprisonment for assault. He asks WSC to examine the case as many of his constituents in Walthamstow [London] sympathise with Macdonald's efforts to collect money for a charitable cause, despite his open air meetings "in criticism of the Salvation Army", and to consider whether the prisoner has already served a sufficient sentence. Signed manuscript.
