Just a line: Yesterday morning Mrs. Mullin telephoned Dr. Clark, who came up in the afternoon. Fortunately Edna took to him at once and thoroughly believed in him. He said her case was at a very critical point. Ordered a nurse at once and that she have no sleeping draughts whatever, but he put in a pack. So poor Mrs. M. hurried hither & thither, so did we, scarcely a nurse to be heard of. But I sent Mary up to Miss Turnbull and she said she would come for the night. In the evening she arrived bringing a cousin who was here on her holiday from Montreal, a graduate from Edinboro, who was a specialist in nervous cases. It was the most direct answer to prayer, Miss Hutton, middle-aged warm-hearted motherly with a lot of fuss. She just met Edna's wants exactly, she seemed just to rest on her at once, poor little soul. After two o'clock she slept. Before that any thing to equal trains I never heard. Dr. D. says she must be outdoors and be fed up. So I am going out to Waterdown to see what the place is like where Mrs. Douglas Buchanan was. With much love, dearie.
Your loving mother
[P.S.] Am writing Cal. We cannot thank God enough for the help given us.
