NIGHTINGALE, Florence (1820-1910). Reformer of nursing.
Autograph Letter Signed to Alex[ander] H[ay] Japp (1836-1905, author & publisher), 1 page 8vo (oblong, very small fragment lacking at the top), 35 South Street, 16 May 1878. Headed 'Good Words', the periodical that Japp assisted in editing, sending an article for that paper.
'I thought I had better reply to your kind note of 13th asking to "know within the next few days when you "might expect" my little "Article" by writing & forwarding it to you. ...'
The unbalanced quotation marks are original, and one senses a slight peevishness in the the final sentence: 'You will see how little it is'.
