A short note to tell you how much I have been bothered this year. It is not my new school, I like it well enough and my students are very good. During the first part of the year my attendance was large. And I have to stand all day. I have had more trouble with my back and it is not quite well yet. If I get the least little bit of bother the whole trouble seems to bother my back and I am unwell right away. For two months I was unwell every two weeks but I am stronger now. But if I cannot sort things out with my landlady I will be unwell again. I have a great deal to tell you but it is now 10:55 PM and I have not got a lesson prepared yet for tomorrow.
