Scope and Content

Photocopy of a letter. Written from [Wooler, Northumberland]

Writes of how life has disciplined and taught her: 'Impatience has been always one of my besetting sins, that of an ardent' aggressive nature, and it is so still, but gradually I am learning through these years of weakness and pain to be patient. Her husband who had naturally a quick temper 'became in his last years the most patient of men, a marvel to all'
