6 May 1906,

My dear Elizabeth,

You have probably heard about your niece, Maria, and the incident in London. Maria has been again arrested in a Suffragette March on Friday last. She threw a rotten tomato at Winston Churchill as he left Parliament.

She has been arraigned to appear in court on the 16 June. Can we arrange for George to represent her in court?

Maria is such a bother, one day she may become less flighty and become a lady, whom can make us proud.

I am glad you had a pleasant visit to Beckfoot, and I appreciate your observation that the children are attentive and obedient, although James can be a real bother.

I am, my dear Sophia,
Your affectionate Sister,
Helen Turner
