DEAR MRS. BULL,
The English people are very generous. In three minutes’ time the other evening, my class raised £150 for the new quarters for next autumn’s work. They would have given £500 on the spot if wanted, but we want to go slow, and not rush into expense. There will be many hands here to carry on the work, and they understand a bit of renunciation, here — the deep English character.
Yours with best wishes,
