What picture it is to be, he apparently altogether leaves to Pissarro, provided only that it is size 10.

It is on behalf of my Charwoman, Mrs. Birchall, of 64 Boston Place, who 8 or 9 weeks ago fell in the street & severely injured her left shoulder & arm, & has been ever since a Patient at your valuable Dispensary. It seems a very tedious case; and lately she tells us that a ‘fracture’ was discovered, & she had to undergo an ‘operation.’ It is difficult to understand her own account of her case, and as I have been doing & am anxious to do all I can for her & venture to hope that you will be so very good as to tell me -how the care really stands now, -what prospect there is of her regaining the use of the arm, -if any, when? -would you recommend her going into a Hospital even now? and any particulars or information that you would have the great kindness to give me I should be thankful for. Perhaps it may be useful to others if I tell you the way in which the accident happened. She had Sciatica but had perfectly recovered under Medical & other treatment & had been given money to buy a good pair of boots— on condition that they were to have no high heels; or if they had, these were to be removed before using them. The condition was not observed. She had not returned to work but went out & in running after an Omnibus in these destructive new boots fell & thus disabled herself. Medical gentlemen are (kindly) strong in their disapproval of these dreadful high heels. Perhaps this instructive incident—one of many—might render them still stronger. Pray pardon me & kindly give me some information about this poor old Charwoman, & oblige. Sir, Yours faithfully, Florence Nightingale I am at this moment away from home, but letters will be forwarded to me.

46 Rackham, Arthur (1867-1939) Autograph Letter Signed, 4 August 193?. Single wove bifolium Stilegate, Limpsfield, Surrey writing paper, inscribed over four pages, to a Dr. Solly [?], commenting on (and disparaging) his illustrations for Dana’s Two Years Before the Mast, mentioning a visit to New York, and the potential longevity of cubism, among other topics, old folds, 9 x 7 in. “Many thanks for your very interesting letter. Dana’s book is a curiously interesting book. It has made such an unusual place for itself. What it is that gives permanent life to such a work is very hard to say. Perhaps it’s simple absolute reality. The pity is it wasn’t illustrated in its own day with all the kindness & experience that would make its reality visible. I am bound to say that my work can only be called hack work of a quite ignorant kind. All boys in my youth still felt the sea in their blood. Marryat & the others were still their favorite reading. They still ‘ran away’ to sea. And, short of the last, I was truly of that date. But when Collins came to me, I had to set it all up— & in so far as I have succeeded in being truthful, it has only been by most cautious hiding my pervading ignorance behind such facts as I managed to ‘mug up’ for the occasion. I did actually take great pains—the lowering of a boat from a yard arm—the tackle swinging loose—the individual actions of the men in the boat as she dropped behind the ship— & all that sort of thing—I had never (or practically never) seen. But I did make sketches & diagrams on board a ship (in dock) & I did all I could to verify my sketches & intentions from both sailors & marine artists. But that’s not the way to illustrate Dana! It was a miserable publication, wasn’t it. All my early books were. I have few or none of them left. I destroyed most at birth. And now it concerns me very much to see my early sins rising up & confronting me. My only visit to the states was in 1929 when I was I met your friend Dick Dana. I wish I could recall meeting him. It was only a very short visit & I saw comparatively few people but they have left rather a confused memory that I have formed a relatively little picture of N.Y. that let me feel at home when E. 66th St. & Gramercy Park or &c. &c. &c. are mentioned. It was winter & I had no time—but among the parts of the world I haven’t yet seen, I do still rather yearn for “Little-women-Land” and other familiar places on your side. It was pouring & pouring & pouring when I walked the school ma’am’s long path. I feer I am too sentimental for this age, but I hardly believe packing-case architecture & cubism are biologically sound enough to flourish for long. Sincerely yours, Arthur Rackham” $300-500
