DescriptionLetter from Amelia Nyasa Laws, Paris, to her relatives, now back in her former accommodation, seeing the memorial tablet to her uncle in place before they left Rome, description, they are grateful to the congregation, Maria was to do the last tidying at her leisure after they had gone and give the keys to Hale Benton, her objections to Hale wanting the keys in a sealed envelope for the bank, and the inconvenience of candle, wax and seal on the steps after the door was locked, Uncle's successor is to be Rev. G.M. Fairweather, of Claremont Church, Glasgow, curious as to why he intends to leave his young family in Scotland, description of him from Mr. Gibson, he is not a settled man, Mr. Gibson is dreading his wife, and it would be amusing to watch, smooth journey and Aunt has now had some rest, the War Office in Paris is not going to take on any more paid nurses, the private clinic is a disappointment as instead of Bois Colombes being a suburb it is 'a sort of Gorgie', a continuation of the city, Paris makes her appreciate Metz all the more, visit to Dr. Senechal to find out about duties at the private clinic, which amount to personal nursing care for three patients, she would gain no knowledge of surgical nursing, she will decline the post and press for an improvement at Metz, going as a paid A.D.F. nurse to replace Mme. Remy at first, Metz wants her to go back, and the A.D.F. can afford to pay her.
