Received short letter from Debbie with
the bad news that Howard is again very
ill - this time with pleurisy. Dr. Yocum
has attended him - & it was necessary to
pierce his lung with a needle - but with
favorable results. She writes me that he
is some better - but not yet out of danger.
I pray that he may recover - our other son
died in my absence and it is too much for
the mother to bear alone. She writes me that
Darrell is doing well this year - Good!
Received a very pleasant letter from
Leigh Hunt, at Chennelp[?], Korea - forw
=arded by Gov. McGraw at Seattle.
Held court this forenoon and called the
motion calendar: dictated letters to George
all afternoon, in answer to yesterdays
mail. Blizzard prevailed all day, but
clear and still tonight. Sat for picture
at photographer today - my Kodak views
are much better than I expected - of the Cape.
