My dear Miss Wald
We have given up the double arrangement with the nurse. There wasn't time to prove it unsatisfactory but the work was quite too heavy. Have you any one in mind whom we could have for a Hull-House nurse? The fifty dollars a month would have to be supplemented of course, to whatever was the customary pay for such work.
We are about to engage an English nurse who would do the work very well I think, but before the arrangement [page 2] is finally made, I should like to be quite sure that no one is available who has had training with you.
How are you, dear lady, and are you never coming to see us again? It would give us much pleasure as you must know, perhaps Mary Smith can persuade you, if she [sees] you this month as she hopes to do. Always affectionately yours
