The Quiet Nightingale

The British Snob


Letter, Spoof


Medical Practitioners, Heroism

    Following a report in the Court Journal, claims to be 'bitterly disappointed' with Florence Nightingale for not behaving like a 'public character', by failing to give public addresses, preside at tea-meetings, and distribute prizes to children. Complains that he had looked forward to reading interviews with her and hearing anecdotes about her 'sayings and doings'.
