DescriptionLetter from Amelia Nyasa Laws, Metz, to her relatives, regarding avoiding church so as not to meet Mme. Brunel, who is doing great harm to Protestantism in the town, some complain that the Brunels treat the locals like savages to be ordered around, arguments over Mme. Brunel's tract-writing, problems with choir practice, though the choir shows some potential, her dictatorial ways and bad manners, criticism of sermon by minister from Lille, M. Brunel's rudeness to Madagascar people in his congregation, attending the A.D.F. Red Cross classes, glad that she has previous experience of the work or she would find the memorising difficult, the lectures will widen her knowledge and introduce her to doctors, Dr. Marais is the tutor at present, opportunities to work at various hospitals locally, one barred as the Superior is 'a bigoted R.C.,' and the other because arrangements to meet the progressive Dr. Jung fell through, but she will now be receiving her practical tuition from him thanks to Dr. Lentz, he works at the Bon Secours, which will mean an early start.
