Dorothy [Bussy] to Pippa [Philippa Strachey]

Scope and Content

Papa highly pleased because Ralph was the only one of the young engineers who was not marked poor in respect of theory (mathematics). Refers to a letter received by Miss Souvestre from Mrs Croall enclosing a letter from Ethel containing an account of the voyage she and David (brother) made to Australia; a doctor there gave an encouraging report on David and recommended them to remain in Australia (see 2 letters from David Croall to Pippa Jan and Mar 1899). Sent from Lancaster Gate.
