"The Trustees have met, deliberated and in a friendly and serious way announced the appointment as of January 1st 1931
and congratulated me. So that phase of things is finally at an end: and I find myself responsible for diminishing the hours
days and years of suffering and incapacity of I wonder how many people who may through the aid of R.F. money initially, be
