'Spence's diary for 1894 - which has not even been seen before - and some of her unpublished correspondence, supplement the Autobiography and reveal a secret or two, as well.  With Susan Magarey's explanatory notes they provide an intimate insight into the fears and pleasures - and scintillating humour - of this public intellectual, this busy jobbing journalist, as she travels through the United States, Britain and Europe, meeting New York's and London's most progressive people, losing her luggage, arriving back in Australia just in time for the passage of a Women's Suffrage Act.'
