Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale!

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of her birth, here is a note in her handwriting from the Sandys Ombersley archive. 

It accompanied a wedding present to her Goddaughter, who was the 6th Baron Sandys' mother-in-law, Gwendolen Trench-Gascoigne, née Galton. 

Gwendolen's mother, Mary Ann née Nicholson was Florence Nightingale's 1st cousin.
