Two pages, 12mo, one edge ragged, with glue residue, with no loss of text, mainly good condition. [...] But, as far as Women's Suffrage is concerned, you may rest assured that I will do everything in my power to secure a decision of Parliament on the broad issues this Session. I am ballot-ing for the Bill myself, and I hope that a good many of our friends will also plump for this measure.WITH: Autograph Note Signed [F M.?] Ponsonby also to Sir Richard Temple, one page, 12mo, black-bordered (Victoria had just died), saying, The Address from Executive Council of the Parliamentary Committee for Women's Suffrage has been laid before the King and a reply will in due course be sent through the Home Office. Note: Presumably Wyndham is referring to Mr Faithfull Begg's Parliamentary Franchise (Extension to Women) Bill in 1896
