Robert G. Torrens Blake Hill - Route 4 East Woodstock Vermont 05091 February 24 1891 Dear Bob Sunday night I returned from a bit of family visiting and found Dr Palmer's book awaiting me. It as so very thoughtful of you to send it. Though I have read a great deal about the disease over the past two agonizing years his is the most comprehensive I have encountered and has collected the most recent reviews and developments. Unhappily reduced to the essentials about the only real point of professional agreement is the anorexia nervosa is perplexing and eludes treatment. Recovery if it is to come apparently must rise from the patient's own motivation. Serena certainly is better. By that I mean she knows just how to maintain enough weight to stay out of hospital, but there progress stops. It causes great sadness. I am distressed to learn from your letter received yesterday that Xerox did such a miserable job on TAF. When thy reproduced the negative several years ago, the results were excellent and this time it never occurred to mr to check through the copy flo. I am mortified especially compounded by the guilt I feel at having taken so long in getting the reproduction to you. The fault is not in the film. But I must say that poor quality is not nowadays unusual here in the U.S. ranging from kiln dried lumber to automobiles and electric toasters. Sad, but true. I have taken TAF down to our local library and enclosed are the results of direct xeroxing the specific pages you mentioned. If you will send me other examples I will do the same, while exploring with Xerox centre the overall problem. A process which will be a stretched out one I am sure. Concerning the crest, about which I have always had questions, I wonder why Burke's included in in Landed gentry. I would presume they would not print something unauthenticated, yet there it is. Copy enclosed. My sons and I wear copies of Dad's signet ring and I have always been uncomfortable about sporting the wrong school tie, so to speak. I am grateful to receive the other information which you sent and, as yet, I have had no time to peruse wishing to get these enclosures to you as quickly as possible. Hoping all is well with you and yours and with sincere best wishes Bob.
