Description:
Temple, undated. 2 pp. 7 x 4½ inches, folds, in good condition. John Cameron MacDonald, engineer and later manager of The Times, became almoner to the Times Crimea Fund. On her arrival at Scutari, Florence Nightingale embarked on radical changes to the medical arrangements. The public funds were hedged with bureaucratic procedures, and she had to meet costs partly from her own funds and partly through donations made by MacDonald from the Times fund. She and MacDonald evolved a close working relationship, and the fund became a powerful weapon against official incompetence. As a result the newspaper was subjected to a campaign of vilification from elements in the establishment, who either denied that things were as bad as reported or imputed base motives for the paper's involvement.

Oxford, 21 August 1844. 4 pp. 7 x 4 inches, traces of former mounting at centre fold. Robert Shelton Mackenzie (1809-1880), editor, biographer (including a Life of Charles Dickens), miscellaneous writer. He contributed biographies to ‘The Georgian Era’ (1832–4), and was engaged on the staff of several London newspapers. ‘Professor Buckland’s opinion was this “I consider it quite impossible that the Tunnel can now fall in. The quantity of water which each tidal change brings over it is immense, but then it does not strike the work, so as to injure it, but comes on it & goes from it gradually. I think the Tunnel may last for a thousand years. In fact (he added) until the materials themselves decay.” The tunnel was opened to the public on 25 March 1843.
