Summary note
Description: These letters relay Vera's life and work in London, with Vera paying much attention to relaying social visits paid to her at Endell Street Hospital and "humorous remarks about the kind of treatment the men must get at a hospital where there were all women doctors". Vera also notes travelling in "one of those 'Gas balloon' cars" and treating Australian soldiers. Several letters also report upon war news, work of the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps, and public depression at such. In one letter Vera proclaims "I am depressed" Everyone is depressed! The war news is depressing beyond measure!".
