 UNSIGNED incomplete LETTER FROM FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE TO Rosalind Shore Smith PEN [5:197-98] Private [WRITTEN DIAGONALLY ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE PAGE] May 9/90 10, SOUTH STREET, PARK LANE. W. [printed address] My very dear young woman The Co-operative anxieties are very grievous & disappointing. But the thing is that disappointment is often growth -- & failure victory. Don't you remember the old Easter carol? I am so old-fashioned & never having been at Girton where I suppose you learnt Arithmetic. I am trying to learn too & to understand that Co-operative Congress + 2 1/2 weeks = 2 months rest for health -- But I fail being old -- Now 2 months rest is the time that working young women ought to have every year -- not a bit too much -- to keep them in working health. And two months is after all soon past. It is a bad arrangement that we you can't do any thing without -- your body -- But, after all, it is. We can't alter it.
