DescriptionLetter from Amelia Nyasa Laws, 7 Via Venti Settembre, Rome, to her relatives, regarding the publication of her letter to her parents in the 'Livingstonia News'; she will write more carefully in the future; memories of difficulties in getting away [from St. Ulrich]; parents should have corrected her bad grammar before allowing it to be published; concern that they will publish more when she does not have the time to study 'style'; Dr. Spiro wants to know why she does not wish to study musical composition but she does not want to add to the accumulation of mediocrity; his ambitions for her; she is not like Miss Richardson with her literary aspirations; the Flemings and the Dalys will recognise the source of the letter; busy week with no rest for Aunt; Uncle says he will not make demands and then does so; Uncle is feeling better so is busier; Uncle criticised them for being severe on Mrs. van Millingen, then criticised her himself; visit to elderly daughter of General Forster Walker; her serenity becomes her age and her intellect is impressive; the youth of today will never grow old with the same grace; Fenisia broke Uncle's bed and he insisted on replacing it with a large one; it is less convenient in times of illness, but he insists that he will keep well; exams for Dr. Brock's course are imminent.
