 A.17 Signed letter from Nightingale to Madame Mohl, Pencil, handwritten by Nightingale, dated July 16/70 [cat care] 35 South Street, [printed address] July 16/70 Park Lane, W. Dearest Madame Mohl[1:759-60] O that I should write to you. & write only about a cat! & this when empires are rushing to their ruin! I feel like poor Faraday: Be gentle with your failing friend But about the cat: -- you were so good as to leave word with Temperance to-day that you had "plenty of good homes for the cats", if I had any to spare! Could you recommend me a home for Mr. Muff at once? He is quite too troublesome to keep. And he is very unhappy, poor fellow -- (And I have had quite too much of policemen, & printing Hand Bills, & offering rewards, & paying them, for lost or stolen Tom Cats in London.) He is very handsome, -- one of yours, -- thoro'bred, very good-natured , about 9 or 10 months old -- I am very sorry to part with him. ever yours, poor failing F. The home for Mr. Muff It must be somewhere where they can let him run about. Or he will break away & be lost the first night. I could send him to Embley. But they always let my Tom Cats be shot or trapped -- not by our keepers -- a cruel death. FN
