 17A Onslow Gardens S.W. Aug 10 with letters of 1878 Dear Miss Nightingale May I not tell you of the deep satisfaction with which I have found your voice pleading for those patient, silent, fellow subjects of ours in India, without incurring any hint of adding one line to their demand on your pen. Don't you see that in this case, silence would be really friendly - I only wish you to feel how many who are appalled at the wide responsibilities undertaken for this nation, are thanking you for making apparent how much is still urgently needed, after generations of distinguished largesse & good men have been dispatched to India, commissioned to carry law & justice to the natives. I have just missed the pleasure of a visit to Claydon where I should have heard about you - I trust that you are able to enjoy this summer weather - yours always M. Monteagle
