Nightingale Fund; F.N. has had three answers from Lady Mary Vyner, Miss Campbell, Miss Wilson which she asks him to read over with Parthe, and return to herself; she is unwilling to accede to Miss Wilson'sl request about the Monthly Packet, as it is more trouble looking over other people's writings than writing herself; Miss Wilson is c=inced about Mr. Bowman and Miss Jones; returns Mr. Palfrey with thanks; but disagrees about Lord Palmerston's 'promptitude' in the Canadian Expedition in 1861; she believes it saved England from an American War.
