 A.26 Signed letter from Nightingale to M. Mohl, Pen, Handwritten Dear M. Mohl I write, because I promised to obtain information for you (which I dare say you have obtained already) as to where Chloroform is wanted. It is not at all wanted at Versailles, but at Blois, Poitiers, Orleans, & Tours & all the places about, where the 5000 wounded of the battle of the Loire are lying, it is lamentably wanted. Chloroform, Surgical Instruments & Blankets are almost wanting. Our Society are, I believe, despatching them -- have already sent some. But there will be room for all. [They are performing operations with common Butchers' knives & without Chloroform -- near Orleans since 8th and 9th. We are told that anything may be sent either by St. Malo or Havre -- but that it is no use sending any thing except with an Agent to take care of it & bring it to its destination. [We have plenty of Agents now.] However, I need not tell you this. There will be more fighting very soon. And the Prussians have, I am thankful to say, despatched half our Giant Ambulance (at Versailles) to Orleans. 2. I hope to send you to-day or tomorrow a copy of all the things & money sent to Germany to claim your kind promise about the Cologne Gazette & the Augsburg Gazette. [concluded on first page] 3. I am as usual up to my chin in harasses -- Will you come & see me on SUNDAY at 3 or at 4? What is the situation for a cat you want filled? ever yours Flo. Nov 17/70 7 a.m.
