Sir Garnet Wolseley, worried about his wife’s fragile health, put in a letter his thoughts to dear Louise:

I trust that we may not be separated again for some time to come, and that our mountain sanatorium may prove a great success: otherwise I shall have to send you off to France or to Switzerland. If Cyprus does not suit you, I shall try to get out of it when I have put it in order. But, if I leave this, I do not know what I am to do, for the Commander in Chiefship in India will not be vacant till 1881 and then, it is not by any means certain I should be given it.
