brains—-- they having the advantage that there is no need of an amputation.I am getting old enough to get tired---hut never Too Tired. My work always tastes good to me.I am very glad that your little Helen has won out. Give her our love—and to Wanda also. You have had a long siege; I hope mine won't last as long.I hope you will "make good" and that we shall see you before long. You always do me good.
