My dear Mrs. Wallace
Your beautiful inspiration came safely to me today, assuring me of your friendly remembrance. Most heartily I send on my good wishes for your "Happy New Year"; and when your improvements are really complete, I hope you will soon forget the serious discomfort [] that produced them!
The only item of personal interest that I can report is my address on "Christianity in Medicine" which I gave last week to a London Society.
Sometime I shall print this careful statement of the basis of medical science, as I believe, and shall offer you a copy. Meanwhile with kindest remembrance to Mr. Wallace and your children.
Believe me | Very sincerely y[ou]rs | E. Blackwell1[signature]
1. Blackwell, Dr. Elizabeth (1821-1910); first female physician
