Mlle Souvestre to Mrs Strachey

Scope and Content

In her austere life friendship was her only consolation and a touch of idolatry is surely allowed for one who distributes the best things of existence. She was pleased that a French scientist she met praised England's scientists warmly, especially mentioning Huxley. Recalls past travels. Thanks for pretty English china also for the regular dispatch of the Spectator. Enquires specially for Pippa 'cette petite merveille.'
