Dear Mary,
I wonder if I thanked you for the slip of Chinese silk. Thanks a lot; its fine and I wore it yesterday with great pleasure. I was invited to dinner in the suburbs and was driven out and had a fine time. The woman who asked me is Asso. Prof. of Pathology at Cornell where the man at the head of the department, Dr. Ewing, is regarded as the best Pathologist in New York if not in the country. He is the greatest expert on the pathology of cancer in this country. I met him at dinner Thursday night at the Murphys and found him very charming. The woman who is his Associate is a niece of Chancy Depew's and a very lively entertainer. She is married to a lawyer and has no children.
We expect Carla and Carlita Thursday. Carla is to have dinner and spend the evening with Ned. Carlita and Mrs. Sheldon are to have dinner with me. Mrs. Sheldon wants to get tickets for Carlita and me to see Ned's play but as the house is sold out until July I do not think that she will succeed. Anyway I think that Carlita would enjoy Ben Hur more for it is a perfectly gorgeous movie.
June 3, 1926. This has remained on the typewriter half done for I have been very busy.
Dr. White and Dr. Johnston were here all day yesterday to see the TB work and both were enthusiastic over our results of this year. We are quite excited over them. Doan came back today after a fine wedding trip.
Last evening Dr. White and I went to see Henry IV an all star performance which was great with Otis Skinner as Fallstaff.
I must run home quickly to meet Carla and Carlita. Carlita and Mrs. Sheldon [?] to dinner with me and Carla with Ned.
I notice that Henry invested pretty much all the money. I don't need any from there for my trip but I thought that you might need some. There is still 200 and the June and July coupons may give you enough.
I don't like to have that old wound still open. How is it now.
With love,
