Dear Mother + Father:

My temperature is normal today. My throat was much better last night, but is worse again this A.M. due to the fact that I breathed thru my mouth all night. My voice was back for a while yesterday, but is practically gone again this A.M. My cough is looser, otherwise there isn't much change.

I know nothing else to tell you. except that Dr. T. said last night she saw where my mother would be taking me to A.C. again. but I assured her you were going to be in Pgh. for a while now.

I imagine I'll be out by Wed. or Thurs. I'm not in a hurry as long as my throat is so sore + my cold so bad.

4.P.M. The only news since this morning is having slept 2 hrs. this PM + also having a [gain ] degree of fever.
