'You are very kind to think of my book and of giving help about dates'
('Personal Reminiscences of a Great Crusade'. For note on her book see her letter to Rhoda dated 17 Jul ). She thinks all is correct now and the proofs nearly revised. The book does not pretend to be a history which she says would be beyond her powers. 'I have only recorded certain events of which I have a personal and clear recollection'. She hopes that 'someone who was in the battle early' will write a real history, for as she explains: this book is 'only my early recollections of the first decade' and is only carried up to the year 1880.'
'Shall we be able to get through the streets tomorrow'. This was Wednesday 22 Jul 1896 and the day Charles, 2nd son of Frederick VIII of Denmark, married Princess Maud (1869-1938), youngest daughter of Edward, Prince of Wales.
