10I was out having my treatment when you came on Saturday. I was indeed
11sorry not to see thy dear face.

13I hope you found our boy better & Ursie flourishing.

15It must be good to get away from this fog & dark even for a day.

17The treatment has not done the good it promised to do at first. I am
18going to try another man, man, for the last time for the stone in the
19kidney. If only they could remove the whole kidney.
