In 1862 Martineau was reading Nightingale’s ‘‘Indian Sanitary paper’’ which she promptly burned to maintain their secrecy (Martineau to Nightingale, 20 December 1862/2007, Vol. 4, p. 368). It is also interesting to speculate about their continual, protracted dying, documented from 1857 through at least 1867, and their failure to do so for many more years (see Martineau to Nightingale, 6 September 1867/2007, Vol. 5, pp. 192–194; Martineau to Julia Smith, 8 October 1867/2007, Vol. 5, pp. 195–197).

Of course, putting the two names on the book would ‘‘ensure complete success y [and] carry the volume into every house in the known world where people can read’’ (Martineau, loc.
