DEAR LADY ISABEL, — Your note came whilst I was away and it has reached me here. I have studied the matter as you wished from both sides, (my patient's and the cause) and I have, in order to be quite faithful, no choice as to the reply, which I enclose for MISS WILLARD. I would I could do differently but it is impossible. I shall return to London almost directly, and shall leave soon to take a longer holiday which I much want. Please address me, as usual to 25, Manchester Square: all letters will be sent on so soon as they arrive. I hope you continue well and are not giving yourself too much fatigue in your great work.
Most truly yours,
(Signed) B. W. RICHARDSON.

DEAR MISS WILLARD, — I regret much to say that I cannot change my decision in regard to your case.
You must remain at rest. That is imperative on the grounds stated in the report which DR. HOLMAN and I have already given.
