Reach Baltimore early, drive to 129. Mother there. . . . . Better this morning, ate good breakfast, can't stand it. Dr. Baxley comes. Must go on very low diet. “With care can get well in six months!” Pleasant prospect, still I am in God's country once more, and that is everything. Mother tells me all about Agnes; three letters from her, one from Winthrop. Dear Agnes.
