Dear Dr Wilson
Please let me have my account. I must take this opportunity of
7: thanking you again for your very great kindness & attention to me when
8: I was ill. I do not think I would have been alive if it had not been
9: for you.
I am always meaning to come over & see Mrs Wilson, but am always
12: afraid of meeting other visitors who may not be very anxious to see me!
I'm so glad your boy is doing so splendidly.
