Plus a pencil copy of the letter from Mr Carlton Smith . ** Helen Rossetti Angeli, daughter of William Michael Rossetti (1879-1969), and her sister Olivia, began publishing an anarchist journal, The Torch, in the basement of their family home. Despite their youth, this effort became the nucleus of a prominent anarchist salon which included Peter Kropotkin and Sergei Kravchinski, and their publishing coups included the pamphlet Why I Am an Anarchist by George Bernard Shaw. Years later, using the pseudonym "Isabel Meredith", Olivia and Helen published A Girl Among the Anarchists, a somewhat fictionalized memoir of their days as precocious child revolutionaries. These adventures were also chronicled by their cousin Ford Madox Ford in his 1931 memoir Return to Yesterday." - See Wikipedia *** "Mr. Carlton Smith" was Donald Carlton Smith an associate of William Michael Rossetti" - See Library of the University of British Columbia Special Collections.
