[written in pencil: [ 1909]] Tufts College, Mass. June 9. 1909. Dear Miss Whitney: The enclosed was an editorial in this morning's Boston Herald. Knowing your interest in the subject, I send it. Mrs. Fay came home from the hospital on Monday last, where she had spent but two weeks as against three last year, and apparently things are as favorable to renewed vision as they were then. At this rate you can see that it would require the practice given by a mere tithe of Argus's eyes, to reduce the entire period of recovery to zero! She is well and happy, and wishes me to send you her love. I regret to report that Mr. Edwards had a stroke of paralysis some three weeks ago - a malady common, it seems, in his family. I did not hear of it until Monday. Calling last evening I was able to see him, as he has largely recovered his powers. He was, of course, in bed, but bright and cheerful. We are all looking forward with pleasure to the last week of July, yet do not forget, dear Miss Whitney, that your rest and convenience must prime in importance our pleasure and that you must not hesitate to make new plans if these are advantaged. Yours faithfully Charles E. Fay.
