50 imageFlorence Nightingale. 1867 (Apr 20) Ten page letter to Miss Edwards, on "35 South Street, Park Lane, London W" notepaper, written entirely in Nightingale's own hand and signed "Florence Nightingale". Nightingale discusses Miss Edwards plans to divide towns and cities into convenient districts for the nursing of sick poor at home, including midwifery, with a large hospital as the Head Quarters for training. She regrets the lack of nursing at home and in workhouses for the poor in London, and discusses the problems of nursing the rich, upon whom nursing institutions rely, such as St. Johns House in London, the Liverpool training institution and the Kaiserwerth Deaconesser; her own training institution is tied up in a trust deed exclusively for the training of nurses for hospitals and the poor. "With all London's magnificent charities I doubt whether there is any city in the world where the sick poor at home are so neglected & where sickness bears such bitter fruits in grinding poverty & pauperism degrading the families for generations, yet where a little timely succour in good nursing, good food (& a change for the convalescent) might save the fathers or mothers from incurable infirmity & consequently the children from being pauperised. So that you see, we in London have no cause to boast". Nightingale sends various requested pamphlets, and continues "I observe that you train monthly nurses, & that you send them to Dublin for training. You should be able to have midwifery nurses for the poor - need I say we should be delighted to train them for you, free of cost, at Kings College Hospital. [The sum we are obliged to charge for board &c I should be too glad to pay for you myself - it would be my small contingent for your noble institution]". Also an 1854 letter from Thomas Hughes to Miss Edwards thanking her for £2, and reporting the temporary closure of the Red Lion Square Institution due to lack of funds; 1887 cover to Miss Edwards in Bristol; and a print of Nightingale. A long and important letter from Florence Nightingale. Photo on Page 8. (Image 1) (Image 2) (Image1) (Image2)
