⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Meta1;

I have been at home one week, but as the weather has been the worst in history I have not yet been out. Everything at the hospital turned out well. My ailment was one of those useless little lumps which sometimes form on the human body. They may be entirely harmless, or may be serious. This one proved to be quite harmless. All the same, surgery does take it out of one, and I have been rather slow pulling up. This is the first note I have written; and Miss Bloom4 has been sick for three weeks!

With much love, dear Meta Willie
