Bear lire lie Vicar*.
1 understand that a meeting of the History of the School of Iters lug Committee
is shortly to take place* As you are aware, there are personal reasons which is&ke it
necessary for me  to return to Canada shortly before tap USA portnit expires and 1 therefore
am not in a position to ask for the privilege of oonferi*ing with the Conamittee* In my
report to the Editorial Committee I have given a full aeoeunt of the ?iork accomplished to
date and although this did not take the foils that had been anticipated 1 hope that the
ilmmae Association will feel that a basis has been established for the history of their
tm School and a contribution has been made to the hi0tory of nursing in the United
States and abroad*
It may facilitate the work of your committee if I make my owft position clear at this
point* You will reoall that in preliminary correspondence I expressed some doubt as to
whether anyone vix® ms not a graduate of your own Sohool ought to attempt to interpret
its spirit and aims*  I m now convinced that this doubt was justified 00 far as I afe
oonoerned and must ask to he allowed to withdraw as editor* I do, hoover* feel a distinct responsibility regarding the exploration and organisation of material related to
the earlier years of the Sohool — that is to say* from 186? to 1907. If your Committee
wishes tm to eosrplete the task ?Mah I undertook in this area I shall he glad to do so
suhjeot lo the prevailing financial arrangement*   1 quite realise that you may prefer
t -
Wm ineomixig editor to take over the project as a nfeeli and in tftat event 1 shall he qui'
in aeoord.
I shall always look haote with pleasure with the unl^pe privilege which ,1 have enjoys
in heing permitted to mmim source material which few gohools are so forttnate as to
 -a-
possess*  I am most grateful to your Committee and to the Sohool of Horsing for af*
fording me  ao happy and stimulating an experienoe.
Cordially yours
Sthel Johns
