Jacksonville, Texas, June 8.—
When I came home for my daugh-
ter's graduation exercises, I
thought I would be back in Wash-
ington by now, but instead find
myself just about ready to leave
the hospital. I hope to be per-
mitted to return to Washington
As I have been unable to be
out for a week, the accidcnt is
nearly all I have to write about
at this time. My right leg was in
a cast because of a broken bone
in the ankle which was the result
of stepping on a bad place in the
sidewalk on May 21, in Wash-
ington. The worst part of that
injury was the inconvenience
caused by the cast, which hinder-
ed my walking, and made it im
possible for me to drive a car. A
week ago, yesterday, my wife was
driving me in our car toward
Jacksonville when the rains
started. The road became stick,
the car skidded out of her con-
trol, and into a ditch. I was
thrown from the car and broke
my le.ft arm just below the

shoulder, and one or two ribs.
I am happy to report that Mrs.
Dowdy received only some
bruises, and that I am well on the
road to recovery, the intense pain
having subsided two days ago.
With the possible exception of a
broken rib a number of years ago,I
had never suffered a broken bone
until the one in my ankle. I have
done a pretty good job of catching
up on my past lack of experience
along that line. It is another of
the experiences that all of us think
happen to other people, but never
Everything constdered, we were
most fortunate that it was no
more serious. The Lord was
watching over us, and He must
have preserved us for future use.
Our friends have been most
thoughtfu!in word and deed,
and generous with their time, in
using busy hours to visit. Such
kindnesses have made the time
pass quickly, that would other-
wise have painfully dragged out
to seem almost endless. I am
deeply grateful for the visits,
letters, cards, telegrams, telephone
calls, and all the many things
done to ma!ke the unfortunate ex-
perience easier and more comfort-
able for me.
Life is slow around the office
