has recovered from her illness she is not as strong as usual but is able to go down town again, and is out in the yard a good deal enjoying the flowers and the beautiful weather. As for myself, after all the kind and loving care I have received I gain strength very slowly after two months I only manage to go down stairs abut dinner time, or after, sit out of doors, or rest in the house as the case may be. I can read a little however and that is a comfort, the first week of my sickness I had heart failure and so am weak in that direction as well as in the old ways. I think I will gain faster now that I can be out of doors.01511
