F.N. is afraid she tired Rosalind with her crusade for milk for poor people and about the extraordinary superstitions as to food of poor mothers; advises R. just to take the doctor's advice for her son; the harm to infants of their mothers' dietary; cooking and eating customs of the poor 'the frying pan is the only cocking they know'; but R. must not be uneasy about her son, and she should take counsel with ant of whom it was said at St. Bartholonew's that he was the only man or woman who knew how to wash a baby; 'I have great faith in the scoundrel of my heart, Sam, tho'he will say (all at once) something to the effect that the world is made to be ill and had much better die off at once.'
4p In pencil B.M. Add.MSS.45795.f.215
