Alix von Cotta to Nelly

Scope and Content

Cotta writing from Berlin. Warms thanks for parcel of gifts. Besides the Lyceum accounts 'I have to pen the history of the Victoria Lyceum in form of a pamphlet for the Educational Department of the Chicago Exhibition and to serve likewise as a commemoration of our 25th year which will be celebrated next Autumn. When the new house is ready'. Very knocked up by Jun but set up by a month at Norderney. In Sep 1892 got busy adding new teachers' courses to the programme; numbers who respond small but Lyceum still the only place in Germany where women can get anything like a University education. One of their best students anxious to spend the summer vacations in England to acquire correct pronunciation, perhaps her friend would help later on. Would dearly love to pay another visit to England next Spring or Summer.
