4pp., 12mo. Bifolium on mourning paper. In good condition, on lightly-aged paper. 'It was indeed a great happiness to see those young choristers finding part of their Christmas happiness in ministering to the invalid little ones. Your work in the Hospital is, I am sure, a blessed one.' He is drawn to that work by 'the thought of a very dear Sister - a Sister of All Saints, Margaret Street [London]- who is now at the head of a Medical Institution at Bombay.' He recalls that Street was 'for some years employed at University College Hospital, and used often to tell us of the little sick ones there & their simple ways.'
