Refers to Sidgwick's letter to her mother, and thanks him for saying 'such nice things' for her [Katherine]. Expresses happiness at the news that Sidgwick is getting on well. Praises her mother, and expresses her own happiness. Reports that they drove down to Wiesen that afternoon; describes the scenery and refers to the Landwasser. Claims that the Züge remains one of the finest things she knows. Thinks that it will be hard to leave Am Hof, since it is the place that she associates with the whole of her happy life. Is glad that they are going out to her mother for the winter. Announces that she goes to England in early September, and hopes to be married about 18 October. Refers to the Sidgwicks' kindness to her when she was young.
Furse, Dame Katharine (1875-1952), nursing and military administrator.
