[2]from Helen, when you were all back from Arizona. It will be a hard blow to the poor child in her condition, but what a mercy it is that she has your tender care to comfort and support her!Wanda will be a great reliance to you both, I feel sure. She is so capable and full of brave young life.[3]I am glad that you are trying Arizona for Helen, for it was there that my lungs were cured, after the Adirondacks, Florida, and California. If she can only stay there long enough, she will surely realize from it.With deepest sympathy for you all from both Mr. Bailey
