1919 FROM THE MOTHER OF A LITTLE PATIENT WHO DIED RECENTLY, Dear Aunt Mary, I have been wanting to write an appreciation of the Silver Chain and Nurse Talbot for some time."No one-save a mother in like circumstances- imagine what a boom the services and advice of a trained nurse are in a lengthy and trying illness. Nurse Talbot has been to me daily for nearly nine months, to attend my only little boy, who is incurably ill, and her visits have been eagerly looked for by us both. It has been such a comfort to me, as it enables me to keep him at home, where otherwise he would have had a long weary spell in hospital. I think the Silver Chain is very fortunate in procuring the services of such grand woman as Nurse Talbot has proved herself to my family.. (reference)
