Dear Fred:

Received your snaps and note this morning. I have hastily posted them to Frances who is a patient in Bethany Hospital, Room 304, Kansas City, Kansas. Last Saturday Frances underwent an operation for both of her eyes. She has been in darkness since that time and will be in the hospital for a few days yet. The operation was completely successful and we expect to have her home by the first of the coming week.

Whoever operated your camera was a pretty good photographer. Thanks, and I know Frances will appreciate the [deleted one word] [inserted by hand] snaps. [/inserted by hand] Give our regards to Jefferys and Rooke if and when you might see him and bear in mind we want the pleasure of entertaining you boys again soon.

In the absence of my wife, the painters have been getting a little work done.

Sincerely,

[inserted by hand] Francis will be pleased to receive prints for her friend Mary[?] Mack[?]. [/inserted by hand]

[Signed] T D Hampson [/signed]
