A CIRCULATING LIBRARY FOR WOMEN.
[TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR."]
Sra,—Being desirous of forming a large Free Circulating Library, for the benefit of the young women employed in houses of business, factories, &c., in London, I venture to ask a place in your columns to make known our need of funds for this purpose, in order that we may have a library well stocked with pure, interesting, and instructive literature, to counteract the pernicious influence of books and periodicals which are being so widely disseminated among our population. Gifts of new and old books and periodicals will also be thankfully received, if sent (carriage paid) to the care of Miss Weitbrecht, at the Central Institute of the Young Women's Christian Association, 19A Great Portland Street, W. Cheques and Post-office orders payable to Miss Mary Weitbrecht.—I am, Sir, &c., 2 Pall Mall East, S.W., May 14th. KINNAIRD.
