Our Summer Gathering in Lucerne

We are making arrangements for a great gathering of the readers of THE YOUNG WOMAN and THE YOUNG MAN, to be held at Lucerne during August next. Parties will leave London every Tuesday and Friday in August, and the tour will last twelve days - seven of which will be spent in Lucerne, and the rest in various trips to other parts of Switzerland. The cost of second-class return tickets (with first class on boat) and full hotel accommodation will be £10, 10s.

The programme will be an exceptionally attractive one. It will include a paper by Miss Annie S. Swan, lectures and sermons by Rev. W. J. Dawson, a lecture by Dr. Conan Doyle, two sermons by the Rev. Hugh Price Hughes, a concert in which Mrs Mary Davies, Madame Antoinette Sterling, and other distinguished artistes will take part, a lecture by the Rev. Silas K. Hocking, who will also read a paper on "Novels and Novel-Writing," and a lecture by the Rev. J. Reid Howatt. Mrs. Crawford, the Paris correspondent of the Daily News, has promised to be present and to read a paper on "Journalism as a Profession for Women"; and social receptions will be held on August 5th and 12th by Mr Frederick A. Atkins and the Rev. W.J. Dawson.

With such a brilliant programme, and such a cheap and attractive holiday trip, we are not surprised to find that there is already a great demand for tickets. As the accommodation is limited, we advise our readers to book as early as they possibly can. Applications (enclosing a guinea, half of which will be returned if the applicant is unable to go) should be addressed to the Editor of The Young Woman, 9 Paternoster Row, London, E.C. The remaining nine guineas need not be paid until a month before leaving England. Further particulars will be found in the circular which we send out with this number.
The Young Woman, January 4th, 1893.
