03Jul1872, Entertaining the Hospital Nurses

LONDON, Wednesday, July 3rd, 1872.
Atie. P. and I spent the day at Seymour Court near Marlow, where Mrs. Helbert and her darling children helped us to entertain 25 of the L. Hospital nurses. The day much spoilt by our sad anxiety over poor Mrs. H. herself, who was in terrible danger of joining the Ch. of Rome — a proceeding utterly incomprehensible to me, especially now, when the Papacy with its new dogma is forcing itself down the throats of all foreign Catholics, thus splitting them into two hostile camps, the "Old Catholics" and the Ultramontanists.
