Chicago -- Jany 20" 1914
My dear Alice
We are having an annual trustees meeting this week and it seems quite impossible for me to get away.
I will try to come next week and hope that you will still be there.
I am sure you will keep me informed as to the dear [page 2] patient, and I shall be awfully disappointed not to see you again before you go west.
With love to the household in which Mary Smith joins me, I am always
Your loving sister
