P.M. Walter Meibohm with check for “July Sunlight Pouring Down”) –
Coughing but no wheezing – truly God must have guided Jimmy Ehinger’s mind (so that he was impelled to try the choledyl) just as He pulled me through the morning of Jan 10 – when everything seemed so black – Oh, why is my faith so weak in the face of repeated blessings all through the years?
--Charles E. Burchfield, January 12, 1958

[Dr. James E. Ehinger, Sr. was one of Burchfield’s physicians; choledyl is an expectorant used in treating asthma and other ailments]
