SIR HARRY VERNEY
35 South Street, Park Lane W
15 Feb. 1867
'Private and Confidential% the trouble at St. John's House and Miss Jones' resignation; she asks Sir Harry to intervene with the Bishop of London; the interference of the Chaplain in nursing discipline cannot be tolerated and would not be so in any Roman Catholic order; 'Matrons don't want to be chaplains, why do chaplains want to be matrons.' Most private; the personal view of the whole matter; they will never get anyone else like Miss Jones; Pastor Fliedner's case was unique in that he was a Chaplain controlling nurses; if Miss Jones goes so do her midwifery school and nurses.
