Example text

To Henry Crabb Robinson, she wrote that Langtrey ‘‘must be finding already that politics are something very different from what O’Connell says Harriet Martineau’s Irish Romance 33 they are y I am miserably anxious about him y he is so unmoveably convinced that the great business of our lives is to hate the Irish’’ (Logan, 2007, Vol. 2, p. 299). Indeed, not all contacts in London were welcoming, as Langtrey discovered at an O’Connell rally: ‘‘Rushing up to the Liberator with patriotic fervour, he found himself repelled with a cold stare.

In the small world of England’s intellectual and political leaders, Martineau was familiar with the Nightingale family before she met Florence (see im passim, Martineau, 1983a, 1983b, pp. 17, 42, 45, 141; Martineau, 2007, Vol. 3, p. 188), particularly Nightingale’s Aunt Julia Smith and cousin Hilary Carter. In addition, Martineau was interested in the topic of nursing as early as 1848 (Logan, n. 1, p. 137, Martineau, 2007, Vol. 3). Martineau was aware of Nightingale’s extraordinary skills as a hospital administrator by 1854 (Martineau to Frederick Knight Hunt, Monday [1854]/2007, Vol.

4, p. 275). Martineau (1859a) relied heavily on Nightingale’s reports and mapping of information for the former’s England and Her Soldiers, as I note below. In addition to this central collaboration, Martineau took the very organization of the book and its topics from Nightingale. Martineau proposed before beginning to write that she ‘‘wd [would] exemplify your doctrine, point by point, in order’’ (underlining in letter, Martineau to Nightingale, 9 January 1859/ 2005, Vol. 6, p. 298). If Nightingale thought this order incorrect or insufficient, she was to inform Martineau immediately: once Martineau began to write she did not want to revise or reorder or significantly change anything.
