7 It was too bad that all your Sunday afternoon was spoiled by me. Thank
8you so much dear for coming. It’s nice to think you are somewhere in
9the world though I don’t see much of you – the last bit of my
10family I have.

12 I went to the sanatorium yesterday. They say they can’t do anything
13for much for me the for the diseased state of the heart & arteries,
14but they give a little relief to the pain caused by the hardened
15arteries. The electric bath & massage certainly did relieve the pain
16greatly for some ^the^ time

18 Good bye my dear old man. You don’t know how I love you.
