A nice little card of precious
texts from Miss Johnstone
and Mrs Happer and Lucy
sent me a night dress
all made so you see I
was not forgotten although
a comparative stranger
to people here. How thank
ful I am for all the kind
friends God has given me
more thankful than for any
other gift except my dear
precious Father Mother brothers
and sister - I went to tiffin
at Mrs Johnson and then
attended bible class at Mrs
Burdon's afterwards 3 of the
members of the class drank
a cup of tea with her then
I came back to prayer
meeting at Mr LuMonts
He made such good re-
marks from the passages

where Christ washed the
disciples feet teaching us
a lesson of humility. I do
enjoy his sermons and
prayer meeting exercises
so much. Came home
ate dinner and now am
spending the eve with you
You can not think how
much I have gained during
the past fortnight - Am
feeling quite strong shall
soon be able to take
short walks if I keep on
improving. Dr OBrien
still maintains I will
get better says he does
not consider me a con-
firmed consumptive and
I now for the first time
really feel encouraged my-
self. It is rather a singular
experience to be under
the care of two physicians



一张精美的小卡片,
里面有约翰斯通小姐、哈珀夫人和露西的珍贵短信,
给我寄来了一件精心制作的睡裙,
所以你看我并没有被遗忘,
尽管我对这里的人来说是个比较陌生的人。
我非常感谢上帝给我的所有好朋友,
除了我亲爱的父亲母亲兄弟姐妹之外,
我更感谢其他任何礼物 - 我去了约翰逊夫人的茶会,
然后在伯顿夫人的三个成员那里参加了圣经课全班同学和她一起喝了杯茶,
然后我回到卢蒙茨先生参加祷告会。
他从基督为门徒洗脚的段落中发表了如此好的评论,
教导我们谦卑的教训。
我非常喜欢他的讲道和祷告会练习。
回家吃过晚饭,
现在和你一起度过前夜你无法想象在过去的两周里我收获了多少——我感觉很强壮,
如果我继续进步,
很快就可以散步了。
O'Brien 医生仍然坚持我会好起来的,
他说他不认为我是确诊的消费者,
我现在第一次真正感到自己受到鼓舞。
在两位医生的照顾下,
这是一种相当独特的经历
