Elizabeth insisted on putting in a roof with lots of little windows for the nurserymaid. Please Sir James will you not appeal in her name at all, as I have such difficulties over it, and I am not sure what it is that you wish to say. It is not that I would not feel proud to have her name mentioned by you, only I have had trouble over keeping her name apart from charities etc. But I expect that you only wish to say that she drew a picture for you of what the hospital should look like. Please forgive me for saying all this, but you can imagine what troubles I get into! However, I hope that this very poor drawing may be of little use - I write this in great haste after having met Cynthia who told me your dinner is tonight. I am yours sincerely, Elizabeth". With marginal note: "If you can manage it - will you not let the Press photograph this."
