By the desire of Miss Florence Nightingale's family. I am making a new study of her life and character. A number of unpublished letters, throwing a new light on Miss Nightin- gale's life, have been placed at my disposal, and it is possible that others exist in the archives of private families. Will you allow me to say how very grateful I shall be to anyone who will lend me such letters Y I should also be -glad to see anything bearing directly or indirectly on Miss Nightingale's life before 1865. All papers lent will be most carefully treated and quickly returned by registered post. —I. B. 0 MALLEi, 6, Steele's Road, N.W. 8.
