 A.4 Initialed letter from Nightingale to her Mother Pen Handwritten by Nightingale, Dated October 28/63 [1:163-64] Oct 28/63 Dearest Mother Thanks for the magnificent game. Please don't forget the oat cake. I am very sorry about poor Wildgoose. But I suppose it was really a release -- Please to let Watson send me a particular personal description of each of the six kittens -- you said two threes -- now you say five, -- which is it? & also whether any is exactly like Pet -- Do not put out any to nurse. It will most likely kill the poor little thing -- certainly spoil its coat. I promise to send one to Lydia from London. Also say how they are known to be thorough breds. [Mine turn out not to be so] -- NB It does not hurt for the kittens for Topsy & Pet to suckle them promiscuously. They always do so. ever dearest mum your loving child F. [end 1:164]
