My dear Miss Addams

                              It is so long since I have seen you and the letter I intended to send you so long delayed!

I have had very strenuous times since I saw you. My sister had a cerebral hemorrhage June 2nd and I spent the summer near her altho for a part of the time in the hills. She has been in three sanitariums since her attack and is only now, since the 3rd of Feb, finally settled in a satisfactory manner and for permanent care.

She is paralyzed on the right side but her mind alert, lungs and heart sound and general health good for one just past her 80th birthday.

She is established in a Home for Incurables for her life, where, by the transference of Annuity and other property security is obtained for her permanent care in what is considered one of the best institutions for such helpless people in New England.

It is a great good fortune for it is difficult to get in where so many unfortunate invalids want to be.

I feel for the first time that I can take a long breath and think of my own affairs with mental freedom.

And the first thing I did after my sister was finally placed on the permanent list and settled in this sanitarium was to accept a waiting invitation to go to Europe as the "Ambassador" of the American Social Hygiene Assn. That invitation came last Nov. and I had to keep them


It is a great good fortune for it is difficult to get in where so many unfortunate individuals want to be.
