Alix von Cotta to Nelly

Scope and Content

Cotta writing from Berlin. Worried over who is to support Vousdin and family whose husband is unable through illness and crime especially as she faces a prospective reduction of income. The Victoria Lyceum is to shut up for good in a year or two when the lease comes to an end. This is the result of setting up higher education for girls so that by 1913 there will be no further need of Advanced Teacher Courses given by the Lyceum. Her prospects for the future are not therefore exhilarating, but as she is approaching her seventies 'resignation is the only becoming mood for it'.
