There is a lovely letter to the Daily Telegraph, dated 26 Feb 1913 , which reads:

'Everyone seems to agree upon the necessity of putting a stop to Suffragist outrages, but no one seems certain how to do so. There are two, only two ways in which this can be done.
1. Kill every woman in the United Kingdom .
2. Give women the vote.
Yours truly, Bertha Brewster'.
