Mlle Souvestre to Mrs Strachey

Scope and Content

Has no good news but feels she must reply to letter received that morning. The patient is no better, the doctor speaks of an infection of the left lung but the treatment has not improved it; she is very brave and speaks of Mrs Strachey a lot. She feels she is being very egotistical in unloading her worries on her friend but expression is a need of her nature.
