Returning to the date discrepancy in Nichols' letter, it occurs to me that she may have dated it earlier than it was written so as to make her concerned father believe that she had left the workhouse for gainful employment rather earlier than was actually the case.

That crossed my mind as well, but I wonder if in April she would have already known about where she would be and what she would be doing. Would she be told with this type of advance? And wouldn't the letter be specific enough (the address, postal markings, etc.) to make it possible to know where she was?
