Summary: Eight letters (some ALS) by Nightingale to various recipients, both known and unidentifed, personal and professional in content. The majority are quite introspective and personal with metaphysical commentary about her place in the universe or opinions about the progress of the Crimean War. One is especially important as she describes having just received the McNeil-Tulloch report and contains her criticisms thereupon. Two are responses to relatives inquring about the health of British servicemen in the Crimean War. One is a critique of a proposed hospital at Yoxall with itemized opinions about her views of hospital sanitation and administration. The two latest letters (1874; 1878) reflect on her life’s work and the satisfaction she received. Majority are postmarked from Balaclava and Scutari.
