Dear Mother + Father;

Again I must be true to my promise to tell you every time I don't feel well.

I'm off to the Infirm. I have a splitting head-ache, my back + legs ache like this summer, + I have fever of 100! (12 M). It came out of a clear sky. in the middle of the morning. I have no idea what brought this on. I haven't had treatment but once for almost two weeks, as I feel they were not helping me at all + I wrote to Dr. Z. for per-mission to discontinue them - so it can't be any infection. The only thing that [peeves] me is that I didn't get a chance to take C. Oil before Dr. B. came - now

I guess all I can have is a dainty pink pill that wouldn't even do a fly any good. However, it can't be helped,

Don't worry - I'm sorry I had to tell you.

I suppose they'll tell me I have chicken-pox or measles!

Received your telegram. Thank you for it.
