· Dear Doctors: r _
Another year has come and gone, a year of work and play, of pleasure
and,_perhaps, fornsome, pain. This last, we hope, has been the mini-
mum. But play or pleasure, work or pain, it has all passed and brought C
t Jagain this lovely Christmas season when all hearts expand and go out, *
one to another. And so our hearts go out to each oflyou with sentiments ‘
of friendliness and well-wishing.
Through so many years (75 of them), the Sisters of St. Joseph's have
been happy to work with and for the Doctors and their patients. During.
the recent years of war we missed those who were "at the front", and
V now again, some have been called by their country, and while their
U nu ber still is small, they are greatly missed. Our hope and prayer is
that they will soon come home.
y) `l’’) ”` we want everything at sti Joseph's (your hospital) to be just what you y _))._ ,»s
( want it to be for the welfare of your patients. We have tried hard to
make it so, but human efforts sometimes fail, and for these human fail-
1 ures, we ask your kind indulgence.
We are grateful to all the Committee Members who have worked hard and
faithfully to form and uphold the policies of the Hospital. We appre-
ciate the time and work involved.
