J[eanne] C. C[arr]
 Madison, April 15. Dear friend I was very glad indeed to get your last, and the most welcome news that you could see a little with the injured eye. Dr Carr thinks the liquid you refer to was only a part of the humor - for the unshrunken ap- pearance of the eye indicates that some must remain. Your physician will of course know best. Dr E. L. Holmes of the Rush Medical College Chicago. Dr Carr thinks the best oculist he knows anything about in the west. He says he does not see why if the [illegible] of [[illegible] is not destroyed in a perfectly healthy bodily condition the wasted humor should not in time be restored. Still he has too little expe- rience to fee certin. Dr Hobbins says the deposition of [illegible] ought to be pracited. and that to secure this you need to take calomel. But at this distance there is no use in en- tering into particulars. Only an examination of the eye can determine. A nephew of Dr carrDr Carr, & the Butlers, and all send love
