“Dear Jean and Jerry,
I’m playing a new role in the hospital set-up now- that of being a patient. I’ve been sick with chills, fever, and I had a swelling on the right side of my face. I was sent to the hospital last Saturday after reporting on sick call the first time on Fri. morning. I’m feeling much better now. I’m O.K. except for my face and that is coming along fine. I guess I must have caught a cold that settled in my cheek.
I’m writing to the folks, Beany, Inga today, too, so all my letters will be short. This is the first day I’ve written to anyone since I’ve been in the hospital.
I’m enclosing your pictures that Beany sent me- they are very good. Did you notice that you are hiding Susan’s face with the fish on the picture that Jean said didn’t do her justice.
How did Tittle act when he found out you were going to leave him, Jerry?
Milly sent a card from Chicago. Did she stop on the way back? I’ll write again in a couple of days.
