[Letter To] Dear Friend
Manuscript or Typescript
In the second letter from Philip Pearsall Carpenter to William Lloyd Garrison and Wendell Phillips, Carpenter tells them he has "carried back to N. York the English Naturalist on Southern Tramp ... I hope you have got them." He states that William Robson "is overdone" but now that he has returned home, Robson "can have a holiday." He thanks Garrison and Phillips for their gifts and reports that "Susan thinks rightly that the profile of W.L.G. is admirable."
Maria Martineau writes to Philip P. Carpenter acknowledging that he has returned to Warrington, [England] and sharing news of her aunt, Harriet Martineau. Martineau says she has "but little to tell of her," noting that "last winter & spring have been a season of very great suffering to her" including a period of "violent attacks of influenza." She sends Carpenter a copy of Nightingales's "Notes", calling it "literally beyond all praise ... to us nurses it is like a new life." Martineau states that Nightingale is also ill and "cannot live very much longer." She says that Harriet Martineau would "have liked to write to you but we are obliged to economise her strength to the utmost."
