How painful it is to FT. to put pen to paper; she saw Miss Hogg last week; Miss H. has the great points of straightforwardness, a good judgement, no self-conceit, and an earnest desire to do right; and she is capable of giving a very good observant account, without criticism, of any Institution she sees; not at all wedded to her awn first training or anything of her own; asks what amusing book she can send Miss Pringle; 'Lord Beaconsfield's Endymion is so low, vulgar and libellous that I cannot and will not send it'; nurses for the Transvaal.
Extract A.L.P.'s notebook GTER. LOND. REC. OFF.
