My Dear Son,

…He had two nice trips since you went away. The new runs go on Sunday. Miss Lanny came the next evening after you went away to see me. She is so nice. And Mrs. Minnier came and sat on the porch for a while. She said the little boy next door had an operation performed on him. The doctors thought he had ruptured himself but when they opened they found a growth or something like a bladder. They had never seen anything like it and did not know what it was. She said they wanted to tell you about it, so as you could see the operation but they hated to ask you not being very well acquainted.…

Your loving Mother
