Betty MacDonald fan club member Kain Talbott shared this very interesting article with great photos.
Thanks a million dearest Kain!
We are really very grateful!
I'm rereading Betty MacDonald's The Plague and I.
This article with the outstanding photos is excellent.
You can imagine this situation much more better even Betty and Kimi stayed twenty or thirty years later at Firland Sanatorium.
Betty and Kimi - what a ' couple ' !
I adore these very brave and funny ladies so much.
Kimi [MacDonald's roommate] tried to comfort me. Her cheeks scarlet with excitement and apprehension, she said, "At least you know that anaesthetics have been discovered and whatever they do to you will be painless." I said, "Yes, but just the fact that they are going to do something to me must mean that I'm not getting well. Remember the lesson: 'There are cases that do not improve with rest, fresh air, and good food.'" We could hear the creak of the approaching wheelchair. Kimi said, "Breathe deeply quickly with both lungs. It may be for the last time."
