Ruth Florence Verney was Florence Nightingale's god-daughter, the Verney family being closely connected to Nightingale by work, and by the marriage of her sister, Parthenope, to Sir Harry Verney. In this volume, to a preliminary blank, is noted in pencil, "Ruth from Aunt Florence" [we do not believe this to be in Nightingale's hand].
