Refers to her writing and remarks that she would not attempt literary work ' work would always be.. laboured - Just now I am slowly translating the life of the foundress of the Good Shepherd - It is the only sort of writing mechanical that I can at all do.' Refers to Frances Maitland's health. Remarks that her illness has returned. Alludes to Frances Maitland's writings and remarks that '...she is generally so very much inclined to depreciate her literary work and think any fault finding justified.
