Before having this tumor removed my eye sight was very bad and I could not read without my glasses, but since the operation I have not felt the need of them.

I did not realize that the impairment of my eye sight was due to this tumor. Hence, I am of the opinion that it would be proper and fitting that I make this statement (publicly for the benefit of those who may be suffering as 1 did for a number of years Dr. Adair is a young man in rp pj jjan(Jall, Principal Day Street School.
