Dear Mother,

I am writing this before going back to college. The doctor was far from encouraging but inasmuch as I feel no better, I could not expect otherwise. I am glad you'll be here next week. I feel that he will tell you what's what more than he will me. He changed my medicine. He also wants me to go [thru] a process twice a day which will be impossible unless I can get the nurse at the inform to do it for me. Otherwise nothing now.

I'm so glad you'll be here next week _ I want him to tell you whether it will last till summer.

Love, Fannie
