My dear Carey

I think that Med. Dir. George Pickrall has it in for me.

Few days ago I arrived from the Solace via the Cyclops. Coming around the Cape Hatteras it was very cold, and early towards morning I took a Veronal tablet, later on I followed this up with 2 strong cups of coffee. This result was too much for me; may be it was my run-down state of health but anyway when I reported up the hospital, Pickrall thought I was a doop. There were a few minor events but they did not amount to much.

I think Pickrall may report me to the Department.

What I wish you would do for me more than I ever wished anything is to get hold of somebody from the Presidents office or somebody from the Bureau of M. & S. or anybody who would, get hold of Pickrall early Saturday morning, and say by phone.

“Leave Adee’s Veronal case alone.”

I am trying to stop any scandal which would undoubtly be the end of my mother, and uncle Alvey. I think may be Bryan would send the message, if you can’t find anybody else, but I dont want my uncle to know anything about the case
