Maine State Archives
Nichols received many letters of thanks from former patients and their families.
Gertrude Jenkins in 1908 called Nichols "My dear friend" and wrote, "I shall always feel a tender memory for the San. and a life-long gratitude to you for your untiring patience and intuitive sympathy in my behalf."
The sanatorium was an important part of many patients' lives and recovering from tuberculosis an event worthy of praise and gratitude to the caregivers.
