Nightingale (Florence) Autograph Letter signed to Dr
Item Details
Description
Nightingale (Florence, reformer of army medical services and of nursing organization, 1820-1910) Autograph Letter signed to Dr John Murdoch, 4pp., 8vo, '[London], Grosvenor Square, 6th July 1888, referring to his work in India, thanking him for his letter, "& for the most valuable publications which followed in the little book, a reprint of, 'England's Work in India' & the 6 copies of your 'Sanitary Reform' which is exceedingly good indeed", regarding meetings at the Mansion House "on the ground of training Women Doctors in India", and referring to her four months illness, folds, browned.

⁂ In the late 1850s Nightingale turned her attention to the condition of the British soldiers in India since the passing of the Government of India Act in 1858. High mortality rates amongst the British Army would make that unsustainable, as she wrote to Lord Stanley in July 1858 (Vallée, Health in India, 52). A royal commission on the sanitary state of the army in India was duly appointed in May 1859.
