Alix von Cotta to Nelly

Scope and Content

Cotta writing from Berlin. Thanks her friend for going into the matter of her retirement so thoroughly with suggestions of new lines etc. But the Victoria Lyceum has had its day; now women are admitted freely to the universities and to all its degrees. She is too old to try to find another sphere of action for the Lyceum after 26 years of activity, but as she does not wish to stay till the bitter end she hopes to withdraw before they have to leave the house in 1911. She hopes to come to England in early summer of this or next year.
