ALS signed “F. Nightingale,” one page both sides, 4.25 x 6.75, personal letterhead, December 16, 1892. Letter to "Mrs. Robertson," in part: "We do not wish for the pork to be pickled, thanks. But if you will be so good as to send one Leg & Sausages & Turkey in time for Christmas, & the other Leg & Sausages & Turkey in time for New Year's Day, if it is not too much trouble, we shall be very grateful—& for the marmalade later when made. I hope that you are going on well—& that that abominable cess-pool is being abolished without more nuisance—There has been enough indeed—& dreadfully enough." Matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 21 x 17, with a window in the backing for viewing the opposite side of the page. In fine condition.
