 42 Well Walk Hampstead 18 June 1898 Dear Miss Nightingale, I was just going off for a bicycle ride when your (?) commissionaire rode up bearing a wheelbarrow a pony (?) Copenhagen's (proper?) tether - and two letters. The one I delivered to Christopher, who is in the garden together with the pony, which he smiled over & hugged & proceeded to carry to the far corner of the garden near the cat. Louis's letter shall go to him to Lea through whither he went with his mother on Thursday. Rosalind had to go to address Holloway women on the virtues of cooperation & later to attend the annual conference of the Women's Cooperative Guild, which is a very good institution, at Derby. They will both come back, I hope, at the end of next week. Louis can dictate quite civilised letters now, so I will leave him to send Aunt Florence his best thanks & dearest love. Christopher is a savage but he can say "Hahle'oo Auhie Fowince for my pony" I met two more crippled & lead poisoned men who came up from the Potteries for treatment at the "(?)" yesterday & this morning I have been seeing off a man who has greatly benefited by their treatment. They have just had a (?) inquest down there in the Potteries on a woman they killed and we are waging all the war of which mere civilians are capable on (?) Matthew Ridley, who is a mud bank. With love and very best thanks Yours affectionately Vaughan Nash
