Lord Esher

Earl Grey

Earl of Durham

I AM glad to report that the appeal which I made on behalf of the bairns in the workhouses has met with a gratifying response. It will be remembered that I asked my readers to help me to supply the children in our workhouses with a box of picture-books, and a collection of pictures to brighten the walls of their somewhat dreary living-rooms. I have received very encouraging letters on the subject from Earl Grey, Earl Durham, Lady Henry Somerset, the Countess of Warwick, Dr. Rutherfoord Harris, M.P., and others; and the first offers of help include the following promises to undertake county

areas

Lady Henry Somerset

The Countess of Warwick

The Duchess of Sutherland

Horace Marshall, Esq., J.P., D. L.
Mr. Alderman T. V. Strong
Dr. Rutherfoord Harris, M. P.

Besides these offers I have received the following subscriptions towards the general fund for carrying out the proposal -W. T. Stead, 10 IOS.; Abraham Hart, Ios. 6d.; A Scottish Working Woman, 10s.; J. H. Arbuckle, IOS.; J. Haddon, M.D., 10s.; Messrs. Hoskins and

Many other readers have undertaken to supply the books and the pictures to workhouses in their own locality, and before this number is published I hope to have received many additional subscriptions. There is a difficulty in Ireland, owing to the religious differences which unfortunately divide that island. My "Books for the Bairns" are certainly unsectarian enough, but some of my Helpers assure me that they would never be allowed to enter their workhouses. I hope, however, that there will be no objection to the pictures. In Scotland there are fortunately next to no children in workhouses, as they are nearly all boarded out. Nevertheless, the opportunity of adding to the brightness of the lives of the unfortunate children of the State is one which I hope will not be neglected in any part of Great Britain where these little ones are to be found. The cost of the fifty little books and the fifty pictures for the walls is only IOS., and I shall be very glad to receive further subscriptions or promises from those who have not yet had their attention drawn to this matter. Further subscriptions should be addressed to the Editor, REVIEW OF REVIEWS, Mowbray House, Norfolk Street, London, W.C.
