Scope and Content

Begging her to pay no attention to the resolution of the Committee. If she resigns she will do so too. She sees it as Miss Bewicke's doing and she will do as she did with Madame Venturi 'write to her firmly and tell her I can no longer work with her'. So 'wait a little' and 'don't resign'.
