after the calls & of a busy doctor is all she can do. She should not even [nominally?] hold any office & certainly should undertake no work outside of what she may choose to do in the house. I was sorry to find on my return home yesterday evening that she had consented to do anything, and after careful consideration she has asked me to return the paper to you & tell you she could not do the work. She felt great regret at being obliged to decline any work for a cause so dear to her but I told her I would write you & tell you of her condition. She & I are both as strong for the College as ever, but [hard fate?] prevents her from doing anything at all for a long time to come. As Miss McKenney say this particular paper did not really require reediting; but could

almost have to be rewritten. With best wishes Yours truly W. S. Stanard
