Scope and Content

Written from Naples. First disposes of the LNA business. Then turns to the testimonial to be given to Dr Nevins for his invaluable statistical work for the Cause, about which she is glad, but thinks he will be grieved to the heart on account of 'dear Dr Carter being wholly left out'. He and Dr Carter worked together, always referring to each other and helped each other. Not possible to divide the money but perhaps Dr Carter's name might be honourably associated with his in any letter accompanying the gift. Her next address will be c/o Aime Humbert (Neuchatel)
