Dear Hedda,

Today I'm no more sick but doctor says I should stay at home couple more days.  Fred called this morning, just arrived.  I'll see him when i'll go out[[strikethrough]]ca[[/strikethrough]] it's not right to give him my gripe - very contagious, real epidemic everybody has it.  I keep apologizing to you that I'm sick and try to minimize it so that you won't say - See I told you - and as soon as you left and taken away that protective wing (fine wing, fine nipple) Shrum!  I got sick.  Mozell cooked chicken and I'm well stocked with eggs and fruit juices.

This morning 8 o'clock registered letter from people I sent that penicilin air mail.  They got it and they ask for once again the same amount.  Big problem there. Don't know what to do.
