Tues. AM. Am feeling fine. Slept all night and haven't had any more of those annoying things. It is seven o'clock, so I must hurry. Don't worry for I'm all right. Am taking the medicine. Dr. Ma [sp] knows just what I need. Hope you all slept well last night, for you all needed it - Love to all, Lara [handwritten on recto]
