Mary Day Lanier asks Dr. Oliver Huckel to remain confidential about the subject she is describing. She tells him of Mrs. Hobart Jacobs' extremely poor health and the condition she has dealt with for eighteen years. A friend of hers is looking for five or six people to send money for her care. She is hoping Dr. Huckel could get the attention of a gentleman she has heard of but not been personally acquainted with. She is relying on the help of Dr. Huckel since her own health is quite poor.
