Jan. 13 – Wednesday –

Dark, lowery day – wet snow falling, temperature hovering around 33-32 –

Slept until after 9:00 (a miserable first part of the night, due to taking the tranquilizers that Dr. X had ordered for me. It seemed rather odd to be taking a tranquilizer for a lack of energy – He had called in earlier in my absence, and told Bertha that the answer might be that I go to the hospital with the end in view that I go on insulin – Bertha stalled on that, and said she thought much of my trouble due to tension etc. etc. – At any rate, the tranquilizer was too much for me – altho it made me numb and unable to maneuver, I still could not sleep again etc. etc.

In studio work on box to send pictures to Bob –

Noon B+I to lunch at the Lodge – afterwards to Plaza to get “get well card” for Mrs. Tross, who is to have an operation tomorrow – There we met Rev. Neeb, who said he had just come from seeing her.

Home, finished packing the pictures, + Bertha + I took it to the airport.
