"I am now here, among my beloved Yorkshire friends and relatives, and enjoying the sea, and far more the society of most highly valued religious friends. I enclose you two of their little tracts."
One of these tracts, "The Gospel," FR delights in because it explains religion as she experiences and by which she has been kept happy, and she wants to share it with her young friend Edith.
FR associated with many writers of tracts and wrote many herself. She carried a satchel of such materials to hand out wherever she walked.
Religious tracts were a phenomenon of Victorian England, looked at negatively by parts of the population and received gladly by others. Novelists, particularly, attacked tracts as harmful. This article from "The Victoria Web" gives some good insights as to why.
