Also in the letter Libbie wrote:
Mamie has written to you since the operation so I need only to say he was still doing finely yesterday. The Dr. who performed the operation saidThere was no letter from Mamie in the 1912 file so I'm glad that Libbie mentioned this. See Mary Frances Carlisle's letter of 26 Nov 1910 for the beginning of the story.
that thenyesterday, "it is perfect and when you say perfect it can't be beat." Doesn't it seem wonderful? how glad we'll all be for him to be able to talk as he should.
