Dear Mr Parsons:

The benzine cure killed the cough in a few days How fortunate my Mosswood visit. I'm always lucky. Am hard at work clearning my desk & clearing the house & grounds, expect to be in S.F. Tuesday or Wednesday & hope to see you then. Will let you know later.
With pleasant memories of my healing visit to your Blessed Mosswood I am

Faithfully gratefully yours and Marians
