Notes:6/11/1901: H Sinclair, SRC, Springfontein to CSRC: Forwarding Nurse Bullen's resignation
5/11/1901: Nurse Bullen to CSRC: Resigning. Her principal reason is that she feels unable to carry on the work; her health is quite broken and she is afraid of an utter breakdown; willing to stay until a replacement can be sent; asks for permit to Johannesburg; had a home there before the war and would like to go and see what remains or, if possible, get a little compensation.
5/11/1901: Dr Webb to CSRC: Forwards resignation of his senior nurse. She has been ailing for some little time and finds the work too hard for her. She has had nursing charge of this hospital since the origin of the camp in February last and worked exceedingly well and hard for us. She was working in Johannesburg before the war, where her friends are now, and believes she owns some property for her. Asks for a pass for her to Johannesburg.
