Appeal on behalf of the Woolwich Council of Social Service by Geoffrey Turberville , Chairman of the Council
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Woolwich Council of Social Service grew out of the pioneer social work of C. H. Grinling , who went to Woolwich in 1887. The Council links together people working for the common good, has done much by contributing service and ideas to important social projects, and has trained many social workers who now serve elsewhere.
This appeal is to help to clear the defici.t of £ 2,000 on the personal service work of the Council, which among its many services includes aid to those in distress or adversity, rehabifotation, holidays for old people, legal advice, and help for the sick in mind and body.

-Lucy Morris has now been several months in her new situation, as companion to that disagreeable old woman, Lady Ambleside. Frank Greystock, still doubting the wisdom of his engagement to her (and still deeply involved in Lizzie's affairs) has continued to neglect her. But Lucy will not admit, even to herself, that she has lost faith in him; and so she has refused Lady Fawn's pressing invitation to return to Fawn Court.
Lizzie, after her long stay at Portray
Castle, has just returned to London. But her journey from Scotland has been attended by a most dramatic incident-the theft, at Carlisle, of that iron box in which she has always kept the Eustace diamonds.
Lady Ambleside's maid:
