local doctor in keeping me in confinement. I am obedient but I am so unused to being ill that it goes hard. I have not been ill in bed for a day since Marian was a little girl. I have no fever now and seem to be improving day by day, but it is slow.As soon as I am allowed, I shall go north with Marian, and I hope, (for two or three weeks,) to the Lake Tahoe region. Then she wants to begin work again in the "Children's Hospital of San Francisco. She will not live in the hospital, so I am to make some kind of a home for her there.
