Scope and Content

Photocopy of a letter (fragment).

Though struck down and helpless she is confident that 'He who is the Resurrection and the Life can raise me up from this bed of pain' Also it will perhaps convince people about her state of health that she is really old and ill.

Administrative / Biographical History

[Early in 1906] This was most probably written some time early in the year 1906 when she was struck down with illness which combined all her old physical enemies. See letters of Sunday 5 [Jan] and 1 Feb when the Dr ordered her to bed and forbade all work and all visitors, though she continues to write to her sons and Miss Forsaith.

For date of letter say 26 Feb 1906
