WILLIAM RATHBONE

Claydon House, Winslow,'Bucks.
14 Aug. 1887
Thanks Mr. Rathbone for his letter acknowledging her telegram; has seen a lady who had a great deal to do with the Jubilee Fund and seemed to have more sense than the others put together; final income from fund will be about 2500 a year, and no part of the capital of 60,000 should be spent on building or on any new organization, but on nurses, as 60,000 does not go very far in building; she does not think that the Queen's Nurses should all be 'ladies'; tradeswomen, now only living 'genteel' lives should be encouraged to widen their activities as the ladies have done, and do something useful; deplores tendency of ladies engaged in district nursing to become 'private' nurses, leaving the poor with only inferior nurses, or even without nursing at all.
