Appeal on behalf of the Southwark Catholic Rescue Society by the Very Rev. Canon Edmund Arbuthnott Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The primary obiect of the Southwark Catholic Rescue Society is the care and upbringing of Roman Catholic children who, for one reason or another, are deprived of the benefit of a normal family life. The children are mostly accommodated in the Society's residential Homes or placed with foster-mothers by the Society on a contributory payments basis. Other important aspects of the Society's work consist of arranging adoptions of children and helping unmarried mothers.

Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Rumour of a woman dressed in white and seen in the churchyard at Limmeridge has led Marian Halcombe and Walter Hartright to the spot, and to the discovery that the marble cross above the grave of Mrs. Fairlie has been recently, but only partially, cleaned. In the hope that this woman, whom Walter Hartright now suspects as being none other than Anne Catherick, and the writer of the anonymous letter sent to Laura Fairlie, will return to the graveyard, he goes alone at sunset and, concealing himself in the church porch, waits for her to appear.
He is not disappointed; but what he learns only adds to Marian Halcombe's alarm at the impending visit of Sir Percival Glyde to Limmeridge House and the hastening of her sister's marriage.
