Dar Friend:-baby has no fever today at all and Dr. says he is certainly on the gain. He eats now like a little pig. So I am hoping to get home in a couple of weeks with a different looking boy than we took away. George had to go back today. Give your mother and all my best regards. Lovingly Olivia

Got your cards. Glad to know we are missed. Baby improves slowly. Some good sign every day toward his recovery. I may have to stay several weeks yet so as to be sure he gets good care. Our Dr. here doesn’t go fishing and forgot the boy is sick. Lovingly Olivia.
