Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. abridged edition. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A Short Life of Florence Nightingale: Abridged From the Life, by Sir Edward Cook, With Additional Matter It was agreed with Sir Edward Cook that if a Short Life of Florence Nightingale based on his biography and not written by himself should be published, it should be stated therein by whom the abbreviation was made. In this matter, therefore, there has been no choice as to the title page. Death has prevented him from writing the Short Life he contemplated. He intended it to be not an abbreviation, but a fresh book. This volume cannot pretend to be a fresh book. It is Sir Edward Cooks book in a shortened form; but some passages of it are fresh and there is some rearrangement of the material. Two Lives have appeared since 1913 of which account has had to be taken. The Life of Lord Ripon by Mr. Lucien Wolf(1921) has made it possible to add to the later history of Lord Herbert s and Miss Nightingales attempted reorganisation of the War Office, broken off by Lord Herbert s death. A memorandum on the projected reforms had been drawn up for Lord Herbert in 1869 by his under-secretary. Lord de Grey (afterwards Lord Ripon); and reforms based on this memorandum were carried out by Lord de Grey in later years, during which he was often in consultation with Miss Nightingale. Some account of these matters will be found on page 235. Mr. Shane Leslie s Henry Edward Manning, His Life and Labours (1921) contains in one chapter a good many references to Miss Nightingale. Her letters to Manning naturally give prominence to the Catholic -side of her religious interests - the side that, in respect of creed, at no time prevailed with her.
