stuff alone thats carrying all of my extra calories. Isn't it wonderful
to think that just that liquid stuff does all that work for my poor old
tired out pancreas. Dr. Banting thinks that on newly-developed cases
their tolerance would be much more likely to be raised under this treatment, but for an old casè/like mine where the pancreas has had so much strain and where my tolerance has been much lowered by various setbacks he thinks the pancreas is just about done its duty, and can't take care of even a gram more. Thank goodness for the insulin! He/wants us to stay up here to see all the emminent specialists who come next Saturday, and then I don't think he cares when we go after that, so I'm sure we can safely plan on that date, but as I said I will send you the telegram so that you may be absolutely positive.

I am enclosing two clippings which I am sure you/will be interested in. One is a picture of your friend beauess Crozier doing something something I never dreamed of her ever doing. Do you really think its her, or do you think its another person. Of course I can't remember
exactly what she looked like so I don't know for sure, but I knew you
would, and so I thought I'd send it to you for fun, in case you had not
seen it at all. The other is a very good criticsm of Paderewskis marvelous concert he had the other night, and every word of it is true. Oh, but he
