The charitable works of Florence Nightingale, & the controversy which resulted...
Item # 661476
August 2, 1855
NEW YORK DAILY TIMES, Aug. 2, 1855 The front page has a nearly half column article headed: "Florence Nightingale Again--Christian Charity and Sectarian Bigotry". The focus of the article is less on the charitable works of the noted Florence Nightingale but on whether she was Catholic or Protestant based on her actions in the field tending to the wounded from the Crimean War. The article is a letter defending the great work she does & noting the concern about her faith is nothing more than a needless distraction.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
