13The doctor I have says I must have two teeth drawn He will come with
14me as they have to put me under chloroform owing to the strength of my
15teeth & their fixture in my gums. They are going to get the best
16specialist in London to give me the chloroform, & Adela Villiers is
17going to send her hospital nurse with me, unless she has had to leave
18for France by tomorrow night So I shall be all right. I shall be going
19up to a nursing home in Hampstead this week about Thursday or to a
20nursing home in Llandrindod in Wales. Will let you know.
