Cold damp day. Received letter from Judie, the first for 12 days, she is well and still [illegible] to think of me the same.
Was most welcome to me, am also happy to know that Uncle and Aunt were well to work making out inventory of Hospital and Office
furniture. Hours virtutis pracmiarm, honor is the reward of virtue, Varium et mutabile semper femina, Woman ever a changeful
and capricious thing.
