Scope and Contents
Letter from Sir Charles Mathews [Director of Public Prosecutions] to WSC concerning the report of the suffragette meeting [28 November 1910] in the Daily Telegraph. He advises that criminal proceedings should not be instituted against Mrs Pethick Lawrence for the language used in her speech because the three courses leading to prosecution (indictment, summons, or the exhibition of articles of the peace) are undesirable. He adds that an application for bail by [Hugh] Franklin has been refused [Franklin was imprisoned for attacking WSC on 26 November 1910]. Signed typescript.
